David Chesky's three new concertos have redefined the role of the modern string soloist.  By fusing the classical concerto form with the modern harmonic language of American rhythmic jazz, these innovative works extend theoretical parameters to realms reserved only for the few pioneers truly revolutionizing their instruments today. Tom Chiu and Dave Eggar are by turn chamber soloists, free jazz experimentalists, and poetic sound abstractionists who bring a volcanic rock-and-roll energy to these works, transcending the typical concerto. 

"As fresh and vital as this music sounds… one gets the feeling that if Vivaldi somehow heard Chesky's concertos, he might find them the strangest pieces he'd ever heard - but he'd always understand what was going on." 
- Ken Smith, Gramophone Magazine

"This music has integrity, and it gets under your skin. A fascinating release"  - David Hurwitz, Classics Today
