Notes & Reviews:

Composer Paul Salerni was introduced to the poetry of Dana Gioia by his wife, who also insisted that he set it to music. That setting and all of the subsequent work that he and Gioia have done together have been key to Salerni's compositional voice. This recording presents three works of his and Gioia's that contemplate various aspects of love (filial, familial, marital, aesthetic, erotic, agapic, greedy, etc.). The string quartet included in this recording is more abstract, but a no less meaningful expression of love by Salerni for his family. Salerni, who studied at Harvard, is on the faculty at Lehigh University. His songs and chamber music are widely performed to critical acclaim. The music on this, his second recording for Albany Records, truly sings and dances.
