Tim Fain has constructed an adventurous and exciting recital of American violin music. It takes in the concert version of Philip Glass’s Einstein on the Beach — Fain “played the hell out of the piece”, the composer says — as well as William Bolcom’s nostalgic Graceful Ghost Rag. Variety and lyricism are the watchwords of the selection, exemplified by the soaring lyricism of Kevin Puts’s Aria and by Lev Zhurbin’s lovely Sicilienne. Together, all these pieces offer a vibrant portrait of contemporary repertoire.
