The birth of a friend's daughter inspired Rick Sowash's <em>Lullabye for Kara</em> for cello and piano. Steven Gerber's Violin Concerto is a rocking to sleep, of sorts, of a work he began as a student at Haverford College but never finished. One part of it, however, was born anew as this concerto's first movement.<br><br>From solo strings to more—but synthesized—is Carl Berky's&nbsp;<em>The Synthelating Mariachi String Band</em>. In <em>Secret Geometry</em>, James Primosch uses electronic tape with piano, and between explosive Variations and a brilliant Toccata is a Nocturne in the true spirit of night-music: the other side of a lullaby, perhaps. Phillip Lasser focuses on the singer of the lullaby rather more than the song itself, in <em>Berceuse fantasque</em> for violin and piano.<br> Sun, 25 Aug 2013 17:18:59 +0000 Kile Smith 6371 at http://wrti.org Berceuse Fantasque on Now Is the Time
