Notes & Reviews:

Los Angeles Times critic mark Swed writes: "It is almost easier to think of Paul Chihara as several different composers. There is the Chihara whose sensitivity to exquisite instrumental color has made him a favorite with such performers as conductor Seiji Ozawa and the Sequoia String Quartet. There is, however, a strong theatrical side to Chihara that expresses itself in works for dance, musical theater and film. And there is Chihara's love for American popular music of the 30s and 40s." Many of these traits turn up in this panoramic survey of Paul Chihara's recent chamber and orchestral music.
