Featured Artist Recording
Pianist Joel Fan is one of the most dynamic and accomplished musicians performing before the public today! This release follows two outstanding solo albums on Reference Recordings: RR-106 World Keys and RR-119 West of the Sun.
This CD is Northwest Sinfonietta’s first release with Reference Recordings, and to quote them: they are “thrilled and honored with their collaboration with long-time partner and phenomenal pianist Joel Fan.”
Northwest Sinfonietta, under the leadership of Founding Music Director Christophe Chagnard, is a vital part of the Pacific Northwest cultural scene and is recognized for its extraordinary performances, innovative programming and collaborations.
Since its first performance in December 1991 honoring the bicentennial of Mozart’s death, Northwest Sinfonietta has held a unique place as the region’s only professional chamber orchestra. In 2012 and 2013, Chagnard led the orchestra on tours to Cuba as only the third professional American orchestra to visit Cuba since the 1959 revolution. After 24 years at the helm, Maestro Chagnard will step down in 2015. Northwest Sinfonietta will become the fourth professional chamber orchestra in the world to adopt its new Artistic Partner Leadership model. Northwest Sinfonietta is excited for the time of transition and growth and will celebrate its 25th season—and Mozart’s 250th birthday—with an electrifying mix of special guest artists and new leadership.
