This recording features Joan Jeanrenaud, the cellist for the Kronos Quartet for 20 years, in her first soloist recording, with the Abel, Steinberg, Winant Trio, and Benjamin Simon, violist for the Stanford Quartet. Rhymes With Silver was commissioned by Mark Morris for Yo-Yo Ma, and was premiered in 1997. The Mark Morris Group has toured the dance version of this piece across North America and Europe. This recording is the concert version, and was produced by Lou Harrison, in July, 2000. The work itself melds baroque with Javanese cadences, twentieth century dance forms, and strains of the mid 20th century avant garde.
