George S. Clinton’s new violin concerto, The Rose of Sonora, is a magical movie of the mind. He takes us on a thoroughly entertaining and often moving journey, all the while expertly using the soloist and orchestra to their fullest. It’s also a lot of fun. Holly Muchaly is in full command and gives a beautiful performance.

The Rose of Sonora…a concerto in five scenes, features renowned violinist Holly Mulcahy and…it’s just an incredible emotional adventure and masterwork. When I close my eyes and listen I see colors…lots of yellow, crimson, and azure.

Mr. Clinton’s new concerto in several scenes is, as one would expect, a masterpiece of storytelling. Without images, he conjures up through the violin solo and a full and colorful orchestra, the characters and scenes of a woman’s Wild West! George’s fertile imagination leads us into a delightful and dangerous world.
