The Concerto Project, Vol.IV is the fourth volume documenting the concertos by Philip Glass. On this release is the world premiere recording of Glass's 2010 Double Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra performed by Tim Fain (violin), Wendy Sutter (cello) and the Residentie Orkest (Hague Philharmonic) conducted by Jurjen Hempel. This work originated as a commission from the Nederlans Dans Theater for a new work choreographed by Paul Lightfoot and Sol Léon. The work is an exciting tour-de-force with three orchestral movements enveloped by duets by the soloists.
