Two major composers come to grips with their heritages in two heart-stopping pieces of virtuosity and expressivity: Mendelssohn, reconciling his Jewish heritage with his adopted Christianity in his stormy piano trio; and Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov, whose music blends Argentinean music, traditional Jewish idioms, and modern sounds into a distinctive style. His klezmer-influenced clarinet quintet, a “raw, unpredictable, ecstatically involving piece,” (Gramophone Magazine) first brought him to international attention and made him “one of the most celebrated stars in classical music.” (New York Times)
