Notes & Reviews:

"Paul Basler (b 1963) teaches horn and composition at the University of Florida-Gainesville. His music is attractive, and he and these horn players are fine musicians, so this is a very pleasant hour of listening. My favorite portion of the program is a set of eight folk songs arranged for horn and piano. The songs are from various lands and show great freedom and creativity on the arranger's part. Especially winsome are 'Funiculi, Funicula' (with neat twists and turns in melody and harmony), 'The Hills of Arirang' (the theme of John Barnes Chance's concert band classic, Variations on a Korean Folksong), the rousing reading of 'The Drunken Sailor', and Basler's poignant interludes in 'Shenandoah'. Also enjoyable but a bit more sedate is another set of four Folk Songs from British Isles. Basler's original works with piano tend to be wistful, with moments of rapture, and they show influences of folk song and new-age music. 'Serenade' and 'Canciones' are for horn and piano, while a melancholy 'Lacrimosa' for two horns and piano could serve nicely as soundtrack music for a Civil War movie. 'Dos Danzas', for the unusual instrumentation of four horns and piano, are joyous. Basler's horn ensembles speak a completely different language. A horn quintet ('Harambee') is in the style of African call-and-response, while a quartet (Three Pieces) often reminds me of Hindemith's Sonata for Four Horns. And a sextet ('The Ascension') is "a personal manifesto on matters spiritual and physical"." -ARG
