Notes and Editorial Reviews

It’s not hard to understand why celebrated violist Nadia Sirota chose Baroque for the title of her sophomore album. The follow-up to Sirota’s 2009 debut First Things First (a New York Times record of the year), Baroque is as intricate and ornate as its name suggests, adorning Sirota’s singular interpretive voice with dynamic electronic processing at the revered production hands of Valgeir Sigurðsson and Paul Evans. Built on works written expressly for her by some of the most widely respected composers of her generation–Daníel Bjarnason, Paul Corley, Judd Greenstein, Missy Mazzoli, Nico Muhly, and Shara Worden–Baroque shows Sirota fusing each composer’s unique voice with her own, then complemented by expert production to create a Read more fully immersive experience that is captivating and original.
