This program of new music was performed with the kind of care, integrity and musical sensitivity one normally hears invested in standard repertoire. Compositions for both solo violin and two violins, expertly played by Sarah Plum and Hal Grossman, ran a wide gamut in terms of edginess and made for compelling listening. Mari Kimura's duo was intriguing in its use of live electronic wizardry.

Antonia Sliva

A strong performance by both violinists. Some pieces worked better than others but one felt a focus and musical intensity throughout the evening. They are strong advocates for their composers and brought each piece to life. Standouts for me were the three duos - David Bohn, Mari Kimura and Sidney Boquiren. Also Plum's performance of Ben Fuhrman's "Sirens" was a real eardrum scorcher!
