Chicago composer Doug Lofstrom has been writing prolifically since the 1970s, with his wide-ranging style reflecting ongoing involvement in dance, film, theater and symphonic music. He has been composer-in-residence for the Metropolis Symphony Orchestra and musical director of Chicago's Free Street Theater, while his works have been performed by numerous American Symphony Orchestras and chamber ensembles. "Music for Strings" is comprised of select pieces Lofstrom began work on in the late '70s, starting with the composition by the same name, originally recorded in 1984 and premiered by the Metropolis Symphony Orchestra. Here, Lofstrom presents these pieces together for the first time with fresh interpretations by Moscow's Russian String Orchestra. Conducted by the orchestra's founder, Misha Rachlevsky, the ensemble is now in it's 3rd decade. "Simply beautiful!" - The Intermezzo. "An aesthetic risk-taker, Lofstrom straddles too many categories to be easily classified." - Chicago Reader.
