About

David Cheskyís radically original powerful compositions on The Venetian Concertos are a tribute to the classic Italian Concerto Grosso form. The American composerís four works here are performed by the Orchestra of the 21st Century.

Chesky uses his fondness for the Baroque as a starting point. However, influenced and inspired by Brazilian, Urban, and Latin music, he then replaces the Baroque line contour with dense chromatic polyphony. The collision of styles creates a powerful new definition of the orchestral concerto form, one which embraces a more contemporary and relevant approach to both counterpoint and energy.
