Mutations CD with Vijay Iyer

 

IyerLast September, I was delighted to play on Vijay Iyer’s new CD, his first for ECM Records. The central piece of the album is “Mutations I-X” for piano and string quartet. I had a marvelous time working with Vijay, a brilliant, inspiring and wonderfully warm person, and terrific colleagues Michi Wiancko, Kyle Armbrust and Kivie Cahn-Lipman. And it was a pleasure and honor to meet Manfred Eicher, with whom I’m happy to say I’ll be recording my next CD soon in Lugano, for the ECM label.

The release of Mutations is March 4 and we will be taking the piece on tour soon (details tba). I’m looking forward to traveling and bringing the piece to different locations. On March 29, 2014, we give the European premiere performance at the Haus der Kunst in Munich.
