MUSIC FOR A NEW CENTURY – VIOLIN CONCERTOS OF SIDNEY CORBETT AND CHRISTOPHER ADLER – CD RELEASE

 

In June of 2011 Plum performed the North American premiere of Sidney Corbett’s violin concerto Yaël at the Chamber Music Midwest Festival in Osceola, Wisconsin, with her colleague Akira Mori on the podium.  The live recording of that concert was so haunting and expressive that Plum decided to release Yaël on a CD.  Her only question was, with what? Later that summer after playing Christopher Adler’s violin piece Jolie Sphinx on solo recitals in Berlin Plum asked him to write her a concerto.  Now, four years later, this project comes to fruition and Plum has introduced these two beautiful, original and quite striking works to a larger public.
