A CD of cutting-edge ensemble, small chamber, and solo works by award-winning composer Jeffrey Mumford and renowned artists.

About this project

Composer Jeffrey Mumford has “ . . . a philosophy of music making that embraced both raw passion and a gentle imagistic poetry . . his pieces carry musical evocations of the effects he describes” - Alan Kozinn, New York Times
