Episode 8 – Mischa Zupko and Sang Mee Lee / Eclipse
The latest episode of Cedille’s Classical Chicago podcast features an interview with composer Mischa Zupko and violinist Sang Mee Lee, whose album Eclipse: Chamber Music by Mischa Zupko will be released on Cedille Records on November 11.
In the podcast, Mischa and Sang Mee discuss their partnership and the inspiration behind the album. Eclipse encompasses world-premiere recordings of inventive, virtuosic, and impassioned chamber works, written in a present-day musical language by the strikingly original American composer and pianist Mischa Zupko. Joining him are two close friends and accomplished colleagues, the sublime violinist Sang Mee Lee, who chairs the string department at the Music Institute of Chicago, and internationally renowned cellist Wendy Warner, a protégé of Mstislav Rostropovich. Zupko wrote some of the works expressly for these artists.
You can listen to the podcast on Cedille’s website or subscribe on iTunes. Eclipse: Chamber Music by Mischa Zupko is available for pre-order on Amazon, iTunes, and CedilleRecords.org.
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.
