“The concept of Echoes was to select well-known short works – five to ten minutes in length – and to transform them for our present time. I picked six of my closest composer-friends, and asked them to arrange, orchestrate, or simply be inspired by an older work they loved, and to create something original for this recording. Each new work presented here is thus an ‘echo’ of an earlier piece.” Gerard Schwarz
