Da Capo Chamber Players: PERLE/CARTER coverIn their two decades of existence, the Da Capo Chamber Players have established themselves firmly as one of America's finest contemporary music ensembles.  Along the way they have garnered the respect and admiration of a generation of composers, including two of the most highly esteemed of all American masters: George Perle and Elliott Carter.

This carefully chosen program reflects both the formative and mature work of each composer and the dynamic performances from Da Capo assure that this disc will become a milestone in the recorded history of twentieth century music.
