Conductors Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The composer's son Rhiannon Mathias notes that, "The first five works on this disc are the fruits of his early years, and they share many distinctive features such as clarity of structure, expanded tonality, and a propensity for syncopation and inventive rhythmic vitality. The final two works belong to a series of single-movement orchestral works which my father described as 'landscapes of the mind.'"
