NY Times ArtsBeat blog on the recent recording of music by Dai Fujikura performed by ICE on the Vienna based Kairos label: "Daniel Lippel, an exciting soloist and a key member of the International Contemporary Ensemble, plays above, among and alongside his colleagues, fluttering and roaring in works that allude to Mr. Fujikura's Japanese heritage while also asserting his cosmopolitan style." Featuring Fujikura's close working relationship with ICE, the release includes several guitar-centric pieces: Sparks for solo guitar, Sparking Orbit (click here to hear a streaming version) for electric guitar and electronics, ice for ensemble featuring flute, percussion, and guitar, and Abandoned Time for electric guitar and ensemble.

A recording project featuring new solo and chamber works by Nils Vigeland and Reiko Fueting was awarded an Aaron Copland Foundation Recording Grant. The cd will include two chamber works Vigeland has recently written for this project -- a piano, guitar, and cello trio titled ...through which the past shines for myself, John Popham, and Vigeland to perform on piano, and a cello and guitar duo Quodlibet, written in 2011.

Andrew Violette's hour long Guitar Sonata is now out as a digital only release through New Focus Recordings. The piece is written in a beautful neo-Baroque style, complete with Fugue and Chaconne movements.
