Notes and Editorial Reviews

Macomber and Han perform these venerable masterpieces with an objective approach that differs from many 'sentimental' readings. The performances are uncommonly committed and beautifully played. Curtis Macomber is probably best-known, at least on recordings, for his advocacy of contemporary works. However, he is among the most versatile soloists / chamber musicians, equally at home in repertoire from Baroque and Classical periods as well as modern day.
