Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"To Amy Beach and Dianne Goolkasian Rahbee, writing for young people is a matter of pedagogy. For others as different as the neo-Romantic Rorem or the serialist George Perle, it is a way of exploring the essence of their musical ideas without the rhetoric of 'grown-up' virtusity and compositional complexity." - Ken Smith, Gramophone
