Spring–Summer 2022 News & Events

New CD Release

Dejana Sekulić’s solo violin CD Temporality of the Impossible was released by HCR in February, and is now available through all the usual commercial outlets and streaming services.

It includes The Crutch of Memory, along with works by Clara Iannotta, Rebecca Saunders, Liza Lim, Evan Johnson, Cathy Milliken, and a rather extraordinary work by Dario Buccino.
