Chicago's acclaimed Music in the Loft series showcases chamber music's stars of tomorrow. Composers in the Loft presents five diverse works - four in world premiere recordings - by the series' former composers-in-residence: Ricardo Lorenz's Afro-Cuban flavored Bachangó for solo piano; Carter Pann's eclectic Differences for cello and piano; Pierre Jalbert's in turns rhythmically driven and mysterious Trio for violin, cello, and piano; Stacy Garrop's String Quartet No. 2: Demons and Angels, tracing a true-life descent into madness and murder; and Vivian Fung's Miniatures for clarinet and string quartet, inspired by the music of China's Uighur people.
Among the performers are the Naumburg Award winning Biava Quartet, cellist David Ying of the Ying Quartet, and clarinetist John Bruce Yeh of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
