Notes & Reviews:

Ken Ueno: Talus offers three concerti that collectively represent Ueno's long-term collaboration with the Boston Modern Orchestra Project and its bold conductor Gil Rose. Composed with specific soloists in mind, each work reveals unconventional techniques and intriguing artistry, bringing to light the unique performance capabilities of the featured instrumentalists. The first piece, Talus, begins with a shocking opening (a la Wendy Richman, viola) and is followed by Ueno's own vocal performance in On A Sufficient Condition for the Existence of Most Specific Hypothesis. The recording concludes with Kaze-no-Oka, a tribute to Toru Takemitsu, with shakuhachi and biwa soloists.

"Big ups to my composer compadre Ken Ueno. He's had a heck of a busy year. In addition to an active teaching schedule at University of California-Berkeley, where he's an Assistant Professor of Composition, he's been busily composing, performing, and supervising recordings of his music. His new disc on the BMOP/sound imprint, the only disc I've ever received in the mail with a warning label on it (extreme dynamic range), is an engaging collection. Featuring the Boston Modern Orchestra project, conducted by Gil Rose, its a collection of his concerti for other musicians (violist Wendy Richman, biwa player Yukio Tanaka, and shakuhachi performer Kiku Mitsuhashi) as well as works featuring his own overtone/throat singing." - Christian Carey (Sequenza 21)
