David Baker’s Concert Piece was commissioned by Lenore Hatfield and The Camerata for M. Dee Stewart. Conducted by Keith Brown, it was premiered with that orchestra in 1997. It is a major three movement concerto with strings “informed by jazz” as Baker said. Since the piece begins muted, Stewart chose to use a SoloTone mute ala Tommy Dorsey. Baker was asked to transcribe it for piano to give it more performance opportunities. After giving the premier performance of the piano version, Ashley Toms and Stewart recorded it in Auer Hall, Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. This exciting work was edited under the supervision of Konrad Strauss, Professor of Music (Audio Engineering and Sound Production); Chair, Department of Audio Engineering and Sound Production.
