Unbounded: Music by American Women builds on the success of Perspectives, Dawn Wohn’s premiere album that showcased music by women from around the world. Wohn’s and Emely Phelps’ performance on Unbounded is virtuosic and sensitive. The album brings recognition to two African American composers (Dorothy Rudd Moore and Irene Britton Smith) whose outstanding compositions are yet to be discovered by most listeners. Amy Beach’s expansive Sonata is given a superlative presentation. The album offers an engaging combination of music from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, vividly presented by two exceptionally talented instrumentalists.
