LESHNOFF, J.: Chamber Music - String Quartet No. 2 / Seven Glances at a Mirage / Cosmic Variations on a Haunted Theme / … without a chance

Jonathan Leshnoff is one of the most exciting voices in contemporary American music, and his lyricism is accompanied by vibrant expressive qualities. The String Quartet No 2 reflects the personal qualities of those who commissioned it with originality and vitality, Leshnoff embracing both mystery and klezmer-inspired writing. Seven Glances at a Mirage creates shifting perspectives and contrasted sonorities, whilst Cosmic Variations on a Haunted Theme alternates between hints of Bachian chorales and Bartók-inspired drama. …without a chance is a response to 9/11, where abrupt rhythms are movingly resolved. “Leshnoff is excitingly ‘the real deal’.” (Fanfare on 8.559398)
