About

Paul Moravec is one of the most admired and acclaimed composers of our time, his music standing out for its melodic grace, lyrical intensity and rich harmonic language. The grandly conceived Violin Concerto rates as one of his most important accomplishments and, with its romantically sensuous elegance and joyous finale, has already earned a place as one of the outstanding American works in this genre. The elegiac Shakuhachi Quintet integrates the classical Japanese bamboo flute with the Western string quartet, while Equilibrium was composed especially for this album, recalling the B-A-C-H motive also heard in the Violin Concerto. Evoking the tradition of delicious encore pieces, Evermore was written as a wedding gift for Maria Bachmann.
