Three works for solo instruments and orchestra by Laura Schwendinger are presented in world premiere recordings. Esprimere for cello and orchestra was written in 2007 for Matt Haimovitz and premiered by him. Curtis Macomber is the soloist for Charoscuro Azzurro for violin and chamber orchestra and Waking Dream, a single movement work for flute and chamber orchestra was written for flutist Christina Jennings, who gave the premiere. The first composer to win the American Academy in Berlin Prize Fellowship, Laura Schwendinger is on the faculty at the University of Wisconsin Madison and directs their contemporary chamber ensemble. The recipient of numerous prizes, awards and commissions, Ms.. Schwendinger’s music has been performed by leading ensembles and artists of our time. The three soloists, all virtuosos of international acclaim, give stunning performances of this music of infinite beauty.

 "... I consider  Schwendinger’s concertos the work of a significant contemporary composer getting a much-deserved (if long delayed) "break-out" recording. And what a recording it is! Truly it would be hard to overpraise the soloists for their superlative performances; cellist Matt Haimovitzis almost superhuman. They, and the excellent  orchestras and conductors, along with Albany’s vivid and detailed sonics, together offer an ideal presentation of these very demandingworks. Anyone who cares about the music of out time should hear them and judge Schwendinger’s accomplishment for himself."
