Professor Xak Bjerken and Senior Lecturer Miri Yampolski have released a new CD on Open G Records entitled, SCH. SCH includes two world premiere recordings of music by Professor Roberto Sierra and Professor Emeritus Steven Stucky, as well as, the works by Schumann and Schubert that inspired them.
From the liner notes…
The letters SCH form the core of the listening experience of this recording as we radiate out from Schubert and Schumann to the masterful four-hand reimagining of the past by two living composers, Steven Stucky and Roberto Sierra. Both composers welcome the inspiration of their musical brethren; to quote T.S. Eliot, “What might have been and what has been, point to one end, which is always present.”

If you would like to see live performances of SCH, Yampolski and Bjerken will be featured in the opening season (Fall, 2015) of a new hall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn called Original Music Workshop performing selections from the disc, as well as the Rite of Spring.
