Soloist and recording
artist Adam Unsworth is Associate Professor of Horn at the University
of Michigan in Ann Arbor. As a performer he is dedicated to commissioning
and performing works of living composers, with a goal of expanding
repertoire and redefining the boundaries of the horn.
His new CD release, Snapshots,
on Equilibrium Records, is a compilation of previously unrecorded
music, much of which Adam commissioned since starting at Michigan
in 2007. Currently he is anticipating the release of Balance, a
jazz recording for horn, jazz quintet, and chamber orchestra, which
features arrangements of his original compositions.
