album notes:

Nancy Galbraith has enjoyed performances and recordings of her music by a distinguished list of great artists throughout her 35-year career as a composer of contemporary classical works. But some of the most talented musicians with whom she has collaborated have been found in her own backyard at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Music, where she has taught for over three decades. Under the direction of the school’s head, Denis Colwell, the School of Music offers a teeming environment of performance activities, featuring ensembles of every kind and an outstanding recording technology program. This album spotlights a sampling of the many extraordinary faculty and student performers who may be found at the Carnegie Mellon School of Music in any given academic year.
