Bela Bartok: Works for Violin and Piano, Volume 1 (BGR 373) is the first of a two volume set of Bartok’s works for violin and piano with Plum’s longtime duo partner, Timothy Lovelace. “Plum rises to this challenge as to all others on this CD with the result that listeners will surely look forward to the next entry in the Plum Lovelace Bartok survey.” transcentury.blogspot.com
Music for a New Century (BGR 371) features two 21st century violin concertos: Sidney Corbett’s Yaël, which Plum premiered in the US with conductor Akira Mori and Christopher Adler’s Violin Concerto which Plum commissioned and recorded with San Diego New Music and conductor Nicholas Deyoe.
MUSIC FOR A NEW CENTURY
Plum’s first solo release, Absconditus (BGR 325) garnered critical praise and established her as a new music interpreter of note on the international new music scene. Absconditus is a portrait CD of Sidney Corbett and a testament to Plum and Corbett’s long term collaboration. “Absconditus is a gem – precious, lovely and plaintive.” – American Record Guide
