Gramercy premiered Schuller Trio #3. The Boston Globe review begins: “A quick stab of a chord, then a dark, slowly spreading pool of dissonance.... Schuller has written a piece that feels retro and youthful at the same time, working venerable veins of modernism with often bristling energy."
Beethoven's gorgeous "Adelaide" for flute & piano - 'bel canto' style, "subtle nuance & passionate restraint". We loved this piece so much that we created a new edition, in addition to our facsimile.
In My Own Lifetime from The Rothschilds, by the Bock-Harnick Fiddler on the Roof team, seen in the PBS film Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy, is one of the instrumental settings of songs on Blessings of Beauty. Flutist Amy Ziegelbaum & pianist Laura Leon. New art design celebrates 14 years!
