Description

A Path Less Trod is Black Cedar’s debut album, compiling contemporary and folk music. It includes Durwynne Hsieh’s Miscellaneous Music, commissioned by Black Cedar in 2015: The first – Möbius Movement – is named after the famous Möbius strip, a geometric construct that has only one surface. Introverted Interlude is a slow, musical portrait of an introvert. Five Fun Facts, is a collage that incorporates disparate elements for the sole purpose of having a good time, including a turkey taking a ride down the front of the cello. Is there a deeper meaning here? “Nah, just want to have fun,” says Durwynne.

Nathan Kolosko’s Hungarian Trio (2012) infuses classical structures into traditional folk tunes. Plus, Black Cedar’s 2014 commission, Of Emblems by Garrett Shatzer, and Klaus Hinrich Stahmer’s forgotten gem, Debussyana (1983).

Black Cedar's members are: Steven Lin, Guitar; Kris Palmer, Flute; Isaac Pastor-Chermak, Cello.
