In a stirring follow-up to its 2017 debut Happy Song, the Anat Cohen Tentet reaches a new crest in its evolution with Triple Helix. The album’s centerpiece is a three-movement concerto composed for Cohen and the tentet, the Grammy- nominated clarinet virtuoso, by her longtime collaborator Oded Lev-Ari, the Tentet’s musical director.
Commissioned by New York’s Carnegie Hall and Chicago’s Symphony Center for live world premieres earlier in 2019, “Triple Helix” won raves from The Chicago Tribune as “a work of considerable expressive reach” and a “sensuous tonal palette,” with Cohen “sounding like a musician transformed.”
"The concerto that anchors the new album...is a model of efficient authorship —capturing the clarinetist’s wide-ranging predilections in one sweeping and powerful statement."
DownBeat Magazine July 2019
"Cohen’s commanding clarinet bursts forth with incredible dexterity and bristles with energy and invention."
