Dubbed “The Commissioners” by Chamber Music America magazine, Palisades Virtuosi has established an enviable presence in the chamber music world since its inception over 15 years ago. The founders are three friends, all who enjoyed considerable success as individual performers, and who shared a love of ensemble playing. An important part of Palisades Virtuosi’s mission is to record and disseminate its new compositions. With the assistance of substantial grants from the Argosy Foundation Contemporary Music Fund, the Alice M. Ditson Fund of Columbia University, and private donations, five volumes of CDs have been recorded and released [by Albany Records]. Volume 6 in the series was released in the spring of 2017. These recordings have garnered rave reviews from such publications as Fanfare Magazine, American Record Guide, and Living Music Journal. Equally passionate about more traditional music, PV has recorded an album [“Palisades Virtuosi in Recital”/High Point Records], which features music of Bloch, Gaubert, Debussy, Scriabin, Saint-Saens and Danzi.
