Notes & Reviews:

Ross Bauer's music is intensely lyrical, powerfully dramatic, harmonically rich and variegated, beautifully proportioned, rhythmically agile and dynamic, vibrantly hued, and emotionally and expressively generous. The stellar performances on this disc will bear this out for the listener. Bauer is a consummate composer, deeply committed to writing music exhibiting not only the utmost skill and integrity, but also the desire to connect with his listeners. On the faculty at the University of California, Davis, Bauer's music appears on the Albany, GM, Centaur and New World record labels. He received a 2005 Academy Award in Music from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Walter Hinrichsen Award.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The centerpiece is The Waters Wrecked the Sky (2011), a setting of five Emily Dickinson poems for soprano and piano. 'Tribute' (2000) is a five-minute, 80thbirthday homage for composer Andrew Imbrie. Heartstrings (2012), a 10-minute solo for flute with string trio, is played by the Tel Aviv-based Meitar Ensemble. Flutist Roy Amotz has a big tone, abundant technical skill, and makes music from the heart. The Near Beyond (2005) is for clarinet with string trio.
