A collection of chamber works by one of America's most notable composers.

Here's some music that proves that it's okay to write in a recognizably American style that's reminiscent of the recent past and fresh at the same time. Many of Zaimont's works have won prizes; she composes in all media; and is one of the most recognizable among today's composers. Her chamber and symphonic works have been widely recorded, and her orchestral works have been performed by the orchestras of Baltimore, Philadelphia, Jacksonville, Mississippi and groups in Europe. As she writes about this collection, "...I've been fortunate throughout my teaching career to have experienced performance collaborations with a good number of top-rate faculty colleagues-including the past fourteen years at the University of Minnesota...This disc celebrates several mostly "Minnesota" collaborations, centering on more recent solo works. Several of these pieces received their premieres in vital interpretations by the same artists heard here."

Review:
"...Zaimont's mildly modernist gestures, lush harmonies, and gentle melodic inflections make her music accessible..." (www.allmusic.com)

"...music varied in instrumentation and idiom, but consistently inventive and accomplished, the work of a composer who deserves to be more widely known..." (MusicWeb International)
