David Starobin: Favorite Tracks, Vol. 2

$ 14.99

David Starobin, called by Soundboard Magazine "arguably the most influential American classical guitarist of the twentieth century" is heard on a CD of his favorite recordings of twentieth century music. Consisting of solo, chamber and vocal works with guitar, "Favorite Tracks, Vol. 2" offers newly remastered performances of the Grammy-nominated guitar virtuoso's recordings made between 1976 and 1997. Featured on this disc are three works by Elliott Carter, and three performances with Starobin's long time duo partner, the baritone, Patrick Mason. The wide-ranging disc presents rarities including Sándor Jemnitz's sparkling Trio, Op. 33 (1932), and Stephen Sondheim's Sunday Song Set, a work drawn by orchestrator, Michael Starobin, and composer Sondheim, from their Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway show, "Sunday in the Park with George."



“Performances are uniformly excellent. These are all long-time collaborators, and the music in in their blood. If you’re new to Starobin’s work, this is a terrific introduction.” - American Record Guide
