Open End's latest release on the Albany Label consists of works composed over a span of 10 years between 1999 and 2008. Six chamber works by Anna Weesner (one solo, two duos, two trios, and one large-spirited piece scored for six musicians) make up this remarkable recording. Having been described as animated and full of surprising turns, this release offers a wonderful insight into the span of Weesner's chamber music compositions.

The Lark Quartet's latest release Composing America has received a series of glowing reviews including a fabulous mention in Gramophone Magazine which described the record as "Impressive, Breathtaking" and "Brilliant". Laurence Vitte went on to say:
"The recording's three-dimensional reality, captured at SUNY Purchase's Performing Arts Center, sounds so magnificent that the whole musical experience actually matches the florid imagination of Andrew Waggoner's booklet-note."
