American guitarist David Starobin's newest recording includes five works dedicated to the Grammy-nominated virtuoso. Included on the recording are two song cycles with Starobin's duo partner, baritone Patrick Mason, a sonata for guitar and piano, and a new work for violin and guitar. The recording also includes a never before released solo recording that Starobin made in 1975. The New Music with Guitar series was begun in 1981 with Bridge Records releasing three LPs that combined solo and chamber works for guitar. The award-winning series has centered around new compositions dedicated to Starobin by composers including Elliott Carter, Gunther Schuller, Stephen Sondheim, George Crumb, and Poul Ruders.
