The album includes the first commercially released recording of Ned Rorem’s neoclassical 1946 Concertino da Camera, which the composer himself calls a “perfect recording.” The disc also offers Czech composer Viktor Kalabis’s intensely personal 1975 Concerto for Harpsichord and Strings, contemporary American composer Michael Nyman’s thrilling 1995 Concerto for Amplified Harpsichord, and English composer Walter Leigh’s poetic 1934 Concertino.
Vinikour received Grammy nominations in the category of Best Solo Instrumental Recording for his 2013 album of modern American music for harpsichord and his 2012 release of Rameau’s complete harpsichord works, both on Sono Luminus. BBC Music Magazine praised his “stylish playing, executed with a sensitive and easy touch.” Gramophone said, “Vinikour’s performances are so buoyant, glistening or noble that you’ll find yourself glued to your speakers (or headphones).”
The harpsichordist made his Cedille label debut with 2018’s J.S. Bach: The Sonatas for Violin & Harpsichord with Rachel Barton Pine. Early Music America praised his “consistently elegant playing” while Fanfare lauded his “prescient, accurate, and highly nuanced” musicianship.
The album marks the Cedille debut of the Chicago Philharmonic, founded in 1988 by principal musicians from Chicago’s Lyric Opera Orchestra. In addition to presenting its own concerts, the Chicago Philharmonic performs at the Ravinia Festival and serves as the official orchestra of the Joffrey Ballet. Artistic Director Scott Speck is renowned not only as a conductor but also as co-author three of the world’s best-selling music books, Classical Music for Dummies, Opera for Dummies, and Ballet for Dummies, available in over 20 languages.
