My group the Cygnus Ensemble has been busy recording lately. The group can be heard on the new Naxos release of the Pulitzer Prize finalist “Brion”, by composer Harold Meltzer. Cygnus Ensemble also recently recorded Matthew Greenbaum’s “Wild Rose, Lily, Dry Vanilla” with the wonderful soprano Re’ut Ben-Ze’ev.
The Anderson/Fader guitar duo, the core of the Cygnus Ensemble is almost finished with their debut cd, with pieces by Wuorinen, Rokeach, Dawe, Anderson, Pollock and electric guitar duos by Scott Johnson and David Lang. All the pieces, with the exception of the Rokeach and the Corbett were written for the Anderson/Fader duo. This recording will be released by the Furious Artisans label.
