“The restless composer has had one hand in jazz, one in classical. Here he brilliantly blends the two, adding ethno-folk into the mix. Musically audacious, and one of the finest recordings you’ll ever hear, period.” — Michael Fremer, Musicangle

Works composed by David Chesky. Chesky’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra and Concerto for Flute and Orchestra infuse the 400-year-old European concerto tradition with its American parallel – the jazz soloist interacting with a rhythm section. The Girl from Guatemala is based on a text from the Cuban liberationist poet Jose Marti, it is an impassioned ode to unrequited love.
