      Anna Clyne: Prince of Clouds (13:28)

      Jennifer Koh & Jaime Laredo, violins; Curtis 20/21 Ensemble / Vinay Parameswaran

      Renowned violinists Jennifer Koh and Jaime Laredo illuminate captivating connections between student and teacher, and composers across the centuries, in ‘Two x Four,’ an album of four double-violin concertos. The touchstone is Bach’s Concerto in D minor, BWV 1043. Koh and Laredo leap from the Baroque to the late 20th-century for Philip Glass’s Echorus on the theme of compassion. Two new works commissioned expressly for the project receive world premiere recordings: Anna Clyne’s impressionistic Prince of Clouds and David Ludwig’s evocative Seasons Lost.
