Description
Banjo wizard Béla Fleck is also a composer whose 2001 recording Perpetual Motion won a Grammy for Best Classical Crossover Album. He and bassist Edgar Meyer then co-wrote a double concerto for banjo, bass, and orchestra, which debuted in 2003. Along with tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain, they then wrote a triple concerto for their instruments entitled The Melody of Rhythm. In 2011, Fleck wrote this disc's piece on commission with the Nashville Symphony. Called The Impostor, it's his first stand-alone banjo concerto.

"There are plenty of moments in the first and second movements of the score where the contrast between the quick-decaying sound of the banjo and the long-held notes of the bowed strings perks interest…. The instrument gradually works up a stronger presence as the music moves along, something hinted at by the monikers assigned to the three movements, with the last one ["The truth comes out: The Imposter reveals himself as a banjo player"] reveling in the kind of picking that Earl Scruggs, to whom the work is dedicated, used to play."—Buffalo News
