"For more than 30 years, banjoist Béla Fleck...one of the world's most accommodating virtuosos...has been pushing the boundaries of his instrument."- New York Times

Banjoist Béla Fleck – winner of 15 Grammy Awards and nominated in more categories than any other artist in Grammy history – is as iconic on his instrument as Vladimir Horowitz or Mstislav Rostropovich were on theirs. Now, like those classical greats, Fleck joins the storied roster of Deutsche Grammophon, making his DG/Mercury Classics debut as a composer-performer with The Impostor. The album showcases Fleck's title concerto for banjo and symphony orchestra, as well as Night Flight Over Water for banjo and string quartet. For The Impostor concerto, the banjoist teamed with conductor Giancarlo Guerrero and the Nashville Symphony. For Night Flight Over Water, Fleck partnered with genre-bending quartet Brooklyn Rider.
