Performers Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Born in 1950, composer Tom Flaherty is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including Meet the Composer, the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. His music is performed throughout Europe and North America by some of the best known contemporary music ensembles in the United States. A graduate of Brandeis, SUNY Stony Brook and the University of Southern California, he currently is on the faculty at Pomona College. An accomplished cellist as well as composer, Flaherty's compositions reflect his love of this instrument. The music on this recording was written over a seven year span and was inspired by his friends, colleagues and family. His compositions juxtapose simple things in interesting ways. Colliding meters, tempos, modes and levels of dissonance permeate his recent music but the performer's experience remains at the forefront.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Tom Flaherty (b. 1950) is a Los Angeles cellist and composer. His music is light in texture and makes pleasant listening. Like many of today's composers, his music is relatively tonal with a slowly changing texture that recalls the minimal movement. I enjoyed it.
