Paul York: Cello Vision
Paul York is Professor of Cello at the University of Louisville, and an avid champion of new music. His past performances include Aaron Jay Kernis’ Colored Field with the Louisville Orchestra and Karel Husa’s Cello Concerto, both Grawemeyer-winning compositions. His latest CD Cello Vision (Centaur 2989) captures music composed specifically for him by Stefan Freund and Louisvillians Steve Rouse, Paul Brink, Frederick Speck and Marc Satterwhite, and the premiere recording of Aaron Jay Kernis’ Ballad for solo cello and seven cellos. Classical 90.5’s Daniel Gilliam talks with Paul York about his new CD and working with composers.
