Violinist Miranda Cuckson has achieved an international reputation as a leading champion of contemporary music and living composers in a remarkably wide range of styles. Known for her organic expressivity, dexterous virtuosity, musical insight, brilliant programming, and love for music, she is acclaimed internationally as a soloist and collaborator. In addition to frequent performances throughout the United States and high-profile appearances in Vienna, Berlin, and other European cultural centers, she has gained an international fan base through her many recordings for Urlicht AudioVisual, ECM Records, and Centaur.In her eponymous first release on vinyl, Miranda plays a new work written for her by a rising star among composers, Stewart Goodyear. "Solo: A Suite for Solo Violin" is an engaging and accessible work that incorporates traditional classical forms with elements of jazz and music that draws on the sounds of his Trinidadian roots.The other side of the LP contains two twentieth century avant-garde masterpieces: "Mikka S" by composer and architect Iannis Xenakis, a challenging virtuoso work incorporating microtonal glissandi and a range of sonorities that push the technical limits of the instrument, and Franco Donatoni's "Argot", which fuses minimalism, mutation, and gestures that conjure the many influences that shaped him, from folk music to the music of John Cage and Pierre Boulez.Drawn from ultra high definition digital sources and prepared for mastering by Urlicht AudioVisual's Gene Gaudette, Miranda's first LP is being issued in a Direct Metal Mastered, audiophile-quality 180 gram limited edition pressing.
