Into the Silence

Music for Violin and Piano of Stucky, Palmer, Jones, and Ko

Violinist Nicholas DiEugenio and pianist Mimi Solomon release a recording representing three generations of composers, linked through the eminent Steven Stucky, whose recent passing in 2016 left the contemporary music community in a state of mourning. Alongside the world premiere recording of Stucky's violin sonata in which he responds personally to the historical lineage of the form, the recording includes the duo's elegant and sensitive performances of premieres by Stucky's teacher and mentor, Robert Palmer, and two of his most accomplished students, Tonia Ko and Jesse Jones.
