Notes and Editorial Reviews

Duo XXI (Anna Cromwell, violin and Mira Frisch, cello) is committed to developing the musical culture of the 21st century through commissioning, performing, and recording new music. Both members are passionate string professors who reach a diverse audience through concerts, conference presentations, and outreach workshops. The duo's mission is to unite today's students, performers, and composers to enliven music and to cultivate the intimate and expressive string do as a genre for our time. In their second recording for Albany Records, they give committed performances of seven of these commissioned works by composers Jonathon Kirk, John Allemeier, Brian Arreola, Ferdinando De Sena, Stephen Anderson, Paul Johnston, and David Maki.
