Notes & Reviews:

The intensity and focus of David Glaser's music reflect the concentration of his life. He has lived in New York City for the entirety of it - raised in Queens, and for the past 25 years, living in Manhattan. What characterizes virtually all of his music heard on this recording is its intentional direction towards New York concert-music performers, their ensembles, and the culture and tradition that they embody and extend. His music calls visual metaphors to mind: the luminous radiance of its sparkling timbral textures is a reflection of the focus of an intense conception, asking that an audience shut its eyes in order to see. Glaser is a graduate of Columbia University and is the recipient of awards and commissions from the Fromm Foundation, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Alice M. Ditson Fund, and the American Music Center.

Fanfare Magazine
If your ears are tuned to the aesthetic of such diverse composers as Arnold Schoenberg, George Crumb, and Elliott Carter, I am confident that you will thoroughly enjoy the innovative and rewarding music on this CD. Performances are uniformly excellent, as is the very life-like recorded sound. Another winner from Albany.
