New CD set to release in early 2020
Our long awaited CD, “Threaded Sky,” is about to go into distribution! While most of our other albums have featured at least one or two living composers, this is the first to have all living composers. We present the music of Bright Sheng (Angel Fire), Krzysztof Penderecki (Ciaconna in Memoria Giovani Paolo II), a new composition by Mani Mirzaee (The Wight of Shadows), and all the violin-viola duos of Augusta Read Thomas together in one collection for the first time (Silent Moon, Rumi Settings, Double Helix). We are incredibly excited- the music is all evocative in some way of the spiritual realm, and the title was chosen from a naming contest held in Houston in the spring of 2019. Congrats to Wilma Pyette for coming up with such an appropriate name for this collection of spiritual music by living composers. H/t to our wonderful graphic designer, Jane Gardner. We will announce on this page the minute sales are open.

Update 3/21/20: Like many of us around the globe, we are under a quarantine order from our local government. Staying home is truly the best way to “flatten the curve” and reduce the strain on all of our infrastructures. We do not know when our live performances will resume, since many were international as well as in different states with different quarantine orders. We are fortunate in that there are still things we can do artistically, so please bear with us as we upload new content on various social media and this website. Additionally, our 4th CD is finally in production, and we will release tracks of it to hopefully provide some entertainment for this difficult time! Stay safe everyone!
