Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Ronn Yedidia's music has been acclaimed for its vitality, variety and imagination, and his compositions for clarinet are especially touching and intimate. Impromptu, Nocturne and World Dance was written for the birth of friends' newborn twins and is full of expressive breadth, lovely textures and a heady use of ethnic source material. Farewell, Nathaniel offers a more somber and reflective experience in music of great depth and loss. Poème is both romantic and impressionistic, whilst the Concertino is a feast of colour and vivid dance energy. Ronn Yedidia's compositions reflect his interest in ethnic world music as well as European classical form and have been featured in major concert halls and documented on film, radio and television. In 2007 the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra gave the première of his symphonic work Steps in the Wonderland.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Each performer commits fully to the music, and Yedidia, Sussmann, Canellakis, and Reardon offer both professional polish and sincere artistry. Fiterstein, though, may frustrate some clarinetists. He has great energy, heartfelt phrasing, and superb fingers and articulation; but his timbre is grossly spread and grainy, likely the result of a soft reed and a sonic concept derived from old-fashioned jazz or Klezmer musicians.
