Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Three chamber pieces by Lee Hyla, all scored for a septet of winds, strings, percussion, and piano. The program opens with Polish Folksongs (2007), inspired by a funeral for the death of the composer's Polish grandmother. Episodes of those tunes are just as often played expressively and sensitively. Field Guide (2006) takes the same kind of gross layering and applies it to innocent bird song. My Life on the Plains (2010), written while Hyla was staying in northeastern Wyoming, takes up almost half the disc. It's a half-hour work in three movements. For what it's worth, notes by the composer are legible.
