Notes & Reviews:

"Born in Texas, John David Earnest has made his home in New York City, where he teaches privately and writes on commission. He has not written a great deal of chamber music, but here he presents world premiere recordings of three pieces that have been around a while... Earnest employs a modernist harmonic language, but the soul of his music comes out in his lyricism and energetic rhythm. Those who are interested in contemporary works will find the program refreshing, and those who are wary need not worry, for the performances are solid, convincing, and enjoyable." -American Record Guide
