- Joseph Kubera (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
Michael Byron (b. 1953) has often been described as an "early minimalist." However, his work in that direction was relatively short-lived. In fact, by 1973, that tendency had all but disappeared as his music began its upward spiral of complexity. The body of music he has composed over the past thirty years has been harmonically rich, rhythmically detailed, and increasingly virtuosic. 'Dreamers of Pearl' evinces a sensitivity for the sound of the piano, a sensibility of extended playing/listening, and an interest in repetition and change through gradual and seemingly clandestine processes that transform and extend what we hear.
