Notes & Reviews:

The five varied compositions presented on this CD provide a concise portrait of Brian Fennelly's compositional practice. They are arranged to begin with string orchestra, move through combinations with soloists, and end with wind orchestra. Brian Fennelly (b.1937) studied at Yale where he was the first student to earn a degree in the newly created Ph.D. program in music theory. From then until 1997 he was Professor of Music at New York University. His numerous awards include fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, commissions from the Koussevitzky and Fromm Foundations and composer residencies at the Rockefeller Foundation Center and a lifetime achievement award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His catalog includes works for orchestra, chamber ensembles and solo instruments as well as choral, solo song and electronic titles.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The program ends with The Other Side of Time (2009), commissioned and performed by Charles Peltz and the New England Conservatory Wind Ensemble. This work is "a large, expansive meditation suggestive of some kind of spiritual journey"; so the instrumental statements seem to carry more meaning than in the other works on this album. Excellent performance by these very fine college musicians.
