Orders received before 1:00 PM Mountain Time will ship the same day, Monday through Friday.

"The past returns, the springs of time unwind, and all is present in the heart and mind." The evocative opening lines of Edward L. Hart's poem Commemoration aptly describe the retrospective sampling of Robert Cundick's chamber works featured in this recording: solo sonatas for each of the principal orchestral strings (violin, viola, cello) with piano, plus a sonata combining all four instruments in a piano quartet. Spanning almost 50 years of composition, these pieces represent different environments and personal interfaces filled with poignant memories from four different periods in the composer's life.

Features Bryan Hernandez-Luch on violin, Claudine Bigelow and Ruth Monson on viola, Julie Bevan and Jim Hardy on cello, and Desirae Brown Luch, Jenny Richards, and Jeff Shumway on piano.
