Cedille's Take 5: Mischa Zupko

by Julia Nicols-Corry

This edition of Take 5 features an interview with Chicago composer Mischa Zupko. Composer-in-residence at the Music Institute of Chicago, Zupko has received plaudits from The New York Times and Los Angeles Times. He’s been featured in the ChicagoReader and New Music USA’s New Music Box, which called him “a humble, energetic, and constantly searching artist.” Chicago’s New City hails him as a composer “with something to say, and the adventurous listener will be rewarded.” His upcoming release Eclipse: Chamber Music by Mischa Zupko encompasses world-premiere recordings of inventive, virtuosic, and impassioned chamber works written in a present-day musical language. Zupko, doubling as pianist on the album, is joined by two close friends and accomplished colleagues, the sublime violinist Sang Mee Lee and internationally renowned cellist Wendy Warner. Several of the works presented on Eclipse were written expressly for these artists. Read More >

Cedille's Take 5: Dover Quartet

by Julia Nicols-Corry

This edition of Take 5 features an interview with the members of the Dover Quartet. Called “the young American string quartet of the moment” (The New Yorker), the ensemble will make its recording debut with an all-Mozart album on Cedille Records honoring the soaring young ensemble’s illustrious teachers and coaches, the Guarneri Quartet. Tribute: Dover Quartet Plays Mozart recalls the Guarneri’s own all-Mozart debut album on RCA Red Seal 50 years ago (1966), which  featured Mozart’s final two string quartets — in B-Flat, K. 589, and F, K. 590. The Dover’s album on Cedille adds Mozart’s Quintet in C Minor, K. 406, performed with none other than Michael Tree, the Guarneri’s founding violist and one of the Dover’s most valued mentors. The Chicago Tribune  proclaimed, “The Dover Quartet players have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet — they’re that good," citing the group’s “expert musicianship, razor-sharp ensemble, deep musical feeling and a palpable commitment to communication.” Formed in 2008 at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music and recently appointed as faculty quartet in residence at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music, the Dover Quartet has won multiple awards, including the Grand Prize and all three Special Prizes at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Cleveland Quartet Award in 2015. Read More >

Cedille's Take 5: Cavatina Duo

by Cedille Records

This edition of "Take 5" features an interview with the Cavatina Duo. Their new album, Sephardic Journey emerged from startling discoveries in their family history. When Spanish flutist Eugenia Moliner and Bosnian guitarist Denis Azabagic learned they each had distant roots in the Sephardic Jewish world of Old Spain, the husband-and-wife duo of “consummate virtuosos” (American Record Guide) decided to explore their mutual heritage through music. Sephardic Journey, the duo’s third and newest Cedille Records album, includes five world-premiere recordings of new works written expressly for them. Read More >
