Esopus CD #16: Composers

For this issue’s CD, we asked composer and pianist Anthony Cheung (whose essay “New Colors: Notes on Composing in the 21st Century,” opens the magazine) to curate an audio compilation that would give the Esopus audience a sense of the range of music being created today by both emerging and established composers. Cheung’s liner notes on the artists and their selections on the CD offer an excellent introduction to what he terms the “eclectic dialogue” that invigorates contemporary composition.
