The music on this album represents some of the first ever long-form works written by classical composers for the traditional 5-piece bluegrass string band, an ensemble that was minted when banjoist Earl Scruggs joined Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys in 1945. By commissioning these pieces, I hope to offer a fresh perspective on this iconic instrumental combination, and a prismatic view into these four fascinating compositional worlds.
