The Chicago Symphony Orchestra commissioned James Matheson's Violin Concerto. The concerto 'owes its existence' to a friendship that began some 20 years ago when Matheson and Baird Doge (member of the CSO) were roommates at Swarthmore College.

"Unlike many younger composers who have a basic idea and then try to orchestrate it, Matheson writes in full orchestra 3D. Waves of tonal sounds moved across the stage, and sections had individual voices and even voices within the sections." - Andrew Patner, Chicago Sun-Times

" addictive album with truly great music very well performed and recorded...James Matheson's Violin Concerto is a stunning work. I just can't get enough of it. Equally great to see Esa-Pekka Salonen, a very good composer in his own right, supporting a fellow composer in this project." - Chris Rille, Computer Audiophile

"Matheson's concerto is a supercharged showpiece for virtuoso violinist and orchestra that connects with the listener on a visceral as well as intellectrual level. It keeps the soloist extremely busy as he negotiates a maze of vivid, colorful orchestral effects that ulimately are the most interesting aspect of the piece. While neo-romantic in overall flavor, Matheson is original enough to shun the feel-good bromides that consistute so much of today's 'new' classical music." - John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune
