Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Reviewed by The American Organist as... ' decidedly a composer to reckon with - an organist who writes originally and idiomatically for her instrument', Pamela Decker (Professor of Organ/Music Theory at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona) is a virtuoso organist and composer who has had commission by acclaimed performers across the globe.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Of the free works on this program 'El Tigre' (2007) is unabashedly programmatic, musically describing a day in the life of a tiger. 'La Pantera' (2009) is more abstract, taking the form of a prelude and fugue, but reflecting in its thematic material the panther's quality of movement. The program concludes with 'Golden Gates' (2010), an evocation of the cultural diversity of the city of San Francisco. The first of its two main themes is described by the composer as a Chinese flute melody, while the second is more Spanish in flavor, with flamenco modal patterns. In general, Decker is able to bring together disparate stylistic ingredients that are synthesized in a coherent personal idiom. The sometimes aggressive dissonance of her style may not appeal to all listeners, but there is no doubt that her music is fresh and imaginative.
