Notes & Reviews:

This disc presents a survey of the music of one of America's least known great composers. Fred Lerdahl's work has been much written about but rarely heard. What accounts for a work like the brilliant 'Cross-Currents', which opens this disc, waiting more than twenty years to receive its first recording? The answer can be found in the absolute originality of Lerdahl's approach to composition. Not a member of any school, he has forged his own path, writing works based on his own technique of expanding variations. At times tonal, at times atonal, these compositions sound like no one else's work. This disc presents works composed over a 24-year period, from the delightful Waltzes of 1981, to the structurally taught Duo of 2005.
