Notes & Reviews:

Is it possible for a veteran American composer to write music reminiscent of his most important teacher, Roger Sessions, and still sound "old-fashioned?" With so many stylistic trends coming and going over the past 50, 60 years, it's refreshing to hear American music that reflects the toughness and stringency of works composed in the early part of the 20th century. But note also that Schiffman, who earned his degrees at the Universities at Berkeley, Princeton, New Jersey and Tallhassee, Florida, also studied with the renowned Ernest von Dohnanyi, whose lyrical nature also rubbed off on Schiffman. Thus, these three relatively recent works make for an interesting contrast with the somewhat tougher Symphony previously released.
