Album Notes
Two powerhouse performers, cellist Matt Haimovitz and pianist Geoffrey Burleson, come together on Odd Couple, released September 16 from Oxingale Records.

Odd Couple Celebrates Elliott Carter’s 100th birthday with a new recording of one of his most popular and loved works, the Sonata for Cello and Piano. David Sanford’s jazz and funk-inspired 22 Part I takes up where the distinctively American sound of early Carter leaves off, and Samuel Barber’s Cello Sonata Op 6 contrasts a European romanticism to Augusta Read Thomas\' more modern Cantos for Slava, dedicated to the memory of Mstislav Rostropovich (1927-2007) Thomas’s work was commissioned for Haimovitz by ASCAP as part of Haimovitz’s 2006 Concert Music Award for outstanding contribution to the performance of American Music.
