Artist Spotlight | Robert Dillon
In celebration of Cedille’s newest album release, Perspectives, we are proud to feature Third Coast Percussion’s Robert Dillon in our Artist Spotlight series, where Chicago’s classical artists discuss the music important to them.
Collaborations have been at the center of Third Coast Percussion’s recording projects with Cedille. Their Grammy-nominated albums Archetypes (2021) and Fields (2020) showcase the Grammy Award-winning ensemble’s artistic partnerships with Sérgio and Clarice Assad, and Devonté Hynes (aka Blood Orange). Their latest album Perspectives is a culmination of these types of partnerships that Third Coast Percussion have developed over its career, and celebrates their collaborative spirit. In addition to the pieces by Danny Elfman and Philip Glass, and jointly composed work with Flutronix, Perspectives also features the music of critically acclaimed electronic musician and composer Jlin (Jerrilynn Patton). Robert Dillon comments on Jlin’s seven-movement suite Perspective in the video below.
Perspectives is now available for purchase and to stream. To learn more about the project and purchase, click below.
Difficult Grace, based on Grammy Award-nominated cellist Seth Parker Woods’ multimedia concert tour de force, conceived by and featuring Woods in the triple role of cellist, narrator/guide, and movement artist, is Woods’ debut album for Cedille Records.
For Women’s History Month, we feature 10 female vocalists who have recorded for Cedille, alternating between selections by male and female composers (with most written by the latter).
On this episode of Classical Chicago, Cedille President Jim Ginsburg talks with clarinetist John Bruce Yeh, who has served the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as assistant principal clarinetist since 1979, about his experience recording Chicago Clarinet Classics.
