Carl Roskott: Works for Violin
Thrilled to announce the release of "Carl Roskott: Works for Violin," an album that has been years in the making! Besides being an associate conductor at the Eastern Music Festival in NC from 1977 to 1997, Carl Roskott was also on faculty at Northern Illinois University (1980-1991) and the University of Virginia (1991-2005), where he was my conducting and composition mentor. He wrote wonderful compositions for the Eastern Music Festival during the 1980s and 90s, including both works on this CD: Concerto for Violin Solo & Orchestra and Sonata for Violin & Piano. Featured on this album are violinist Akemi Takayama, pianist Silvan Negrutiu, and the Shenandoah Conservatory Symphony Orchestra. I can't thank all of them enough for their fantastic playing and their generous contributions to make this album possible. Thanks also to dear friend Susan Black for making Carl's manuscripts available; to Jan Wagner for his assistance and support; and to Daniel Shores of Sono Luminus, Harold Thompson of Blackwater Recording, John Jewell of Jewell Tone Music, Kyle Contento, and Matthew Twiford for all their help with recording and editing.
