Notes & Reviews:

Louise Talma, one of the foremost American neo-classical composers of the 20th century, wrote a substantial body of music covering a wide range of genres. Talma's music shows a keen intellectual mind, but she also engages listeners at a visceral level and entertains them with her originality and quirkiness. Talma frequently combines motor energy (sometimes associated with Stravinsky) with a melancholy expression, and often creates moments of extraordinary beauty, such as in the 'lullaby', in 7 Episodes.
