February 25 marks the release of the third volume of cellist Inbal Segev’s “20 for 2020” commissioning project, comprising world premiere works (in album order) by John Luther Adams, Adolphus Hailstork, Gloria Coates, Agata Zubel and Christopher Tyler Nickel, with guest artists Ian Rosenbaum on marimba, vocalist Charlotte Mundy, and Nickel playing oboe d’amore, cor anglais and bass oboe on his own composition, Fractures of Solitude, which is also available as an audio single. The cellist launched this major new project in fall of 2020, galvanized by the unprecedented worldwide crises that characterized that year, to capture something of that collective experience and encourage creative recovery from it. The entire project comprises four volumes of new chamber works, each released individually in digital format; a music video series; and a physical album on Avie Records that includes all four volumes. Volume IV will have works by Camille El Bacha, Stewart Goodyear, Molly Joyce, Immanuel Wilkins, and Segev herself. A trailer for Volume III can be found here, it can be pre-ordered here, and the audio single can be streamed here. Further info can be found in a profile of the project that ran in the July-August 2021 edition of Strings magazine.

A native of Israel, at 16 Segev was invited by Isaac Stern to continue her cello studies in the U.S., where she earned degrees from Yale University and the Juilliard School, before co-founding the Amerigo Trio with former New York Philharmonic concertmaster Glenn Dicterow and violist Karen Dreyfus. Segev’s cello was made by Francesco Ruggieri in 1673.
