Michael Hersch's newest release, "Carrion-Miles to Purgatory", features three intensely introspective duos performed by close collaborators of his, virtuoso violinists Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Miranda Cuckson, cellist Jay Campbell, and Hersch himself on piano. His work described by The New York Times as "viscerally gripping and emotionally transformative music...claustrophobic and exhilarating at once, with moments of sublime beauty nestled inside thickets of dark virtuosity,” composer Michael Hersch is widely regarded as among today's most gifted artists. Recent and upcoming premieres include his Violin Concerto with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Lucerne Festival in Switzerland, and the Avanti Festival in Helsinki.
