Notes and Editorial Reviews

Orange Mountain's fourth volume documenting the concertos by Philip Glass features the world première recording of the composer's 2010 Double Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra, performed by violinist Tim Fain and cellist Wendy Sutter. The work originated as a commission from the Nederlans Dans Theater for a new dance piece choreographed by Paul Lightfoot and Sol Léon. It is an exciting tour-de-force with three orchestral movements enveloped in duets by the soloists. The second work on this disc is Glass's first piano concerto, the Tirol Concerto for Piano and Orchestra from 2000. It is performed by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra with Dennis Russell Davies as conductor and soloist.
