Notes & Reviews:

In the 2014 movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the drama reaches its ultimate focus in intensity with the Captain's hand-to-hand confrontation with The Winter Soldier, a bionically transformed "Bucky," a former best friend whose mind has been washed clean in the process of transformation into a killing machine. "You know me," Steve Rogers says, setting off the inner conflict that leads to Captain America's final rescue as he is dragged ashore by Bucky. In this case, Bucky's internal identity conflict produces a surpassing truth, reaffirming the Lockean goodness of human nature. Throughout the arts, the confusion of identity as a path to truth pervades, from Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors, to endless scenes in opera: a temporary confusion of Don Giovanni pretending to be Leporello in Act II of Mozart's opera, to the "Wanderer" in Wagner's Siegfried, the transformed Wotan. Resolution of the identity conflict tells us something we would not know without the confusion. The identity of the prisoner in Les Misérables or the Picture of Dorian Gray, which is one half of two identities, expose a truth beyond character.

I recently received a bad review for a flute quartet in which the critic complains that I did not use "extended techniques." A lot of listeners now think that these techniques have become clichés in the absence of real creativity. Everything on this disc is tonal music: this is not your aunt's bag of ditties.
