Among contemporary composers of orchestral music, Christopher Rouse is a prominent figure, noted for his extremely virtuosic scores as well as for his dark subject matter. Such fantastic – some might say nightmarish – pieces as the ultra-violent Gorgon (1984) and the enigmatic Iscariot (1989) are true to form in their evocation of mythology or religion, and even the elegiac Trombone Concerto (1991) has its suggestions of otherworldly things, particularly in its quotation of Leonard Bernstein's "Kaddish" Symphony and the haunting, dirge-like adaptation of the folk song Tsintskaro at the opening of the third movement. Yet Rouse's music is much more than its allusions, however meaningful, and it's possible to enjoy these works for their raw power and ethereal beauty without knowing anything about their references.

Belgian composer Jean-Baptiste Singelee, while often remembered for his groundbreaking treatment of the newly developed saxophone, he was primarily a violinist, and also composed beautiful works for the instrument. Perhaps Singelee's time as the violin soloist at the Theatre Royal de la Monnaie inspired him to compose these fantasies based on popular operas. This first volume of opera fantasies from violinist Thomas Wood and pianist Brian Dykstra include fantasies on The Barber of Seville, Martha, and more. Thomas Wood is a Professor of Music at The College of Wooster, where he teaches violin, viola, chamber music, string methods, music history, and literature. He was the first violinist to be awarded the degree Doctor of Musical Arts in Violin Performance from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition to his teaching, he is active as a soloist and in recital, and has performed across the United States and Spain.

"Cos’è che rende leggendario un assassino? Nel caso di John Rain, ciò che ha imparato sull’amore, la guerra e il tradimento a Tokyo nel 1972. Appena tornato dai campi di battaglia del Sudest asiatico, Rain inizia a lavorare come galoppino sotto l’occhio vigile del suo supervisore della CIA, consegnando mazzette destinate a esponenti del governo giapponese. Ma quando una consegna finisce in un bagno di sangue, si ritrova nel mirino del clan della yakuza più potente del paese. Per sopravvivere, stringe un patto disperato con il suo supervisore: in cambio delle informazioni che gli servono per uccidere chi lo vuole morto, dovrà eliminare un importante membro del governo nipponico. Mentre Rain gioca al gatto col topo con la yakuza e si sforza di imparare i trucchi del suo nuovo incarico di killer a contratto, si innamora di Sayaka, una coreana difficile e bellissima, costretta in sedia a rotelle. Ma le urgenze del suo micidiale lavoro entrano in rotta di collisione con i desideri del cuore e, quando la vita di Sayaka si troverà in pericolo, Rain sarà costretto a fare una scelta terribile."
