Notes & Reviews:

The orchestral works on this CD of world premiere recordings incorporate a wealth of compositional techniques- archaic, arcane and contemporary. These works constitute a cross section of musical perspectives that can also be found in George Walker's chamber works. The focus on creating relationships that have direction and dimensionality distinguishes these scores from other trends embraced in the 20th century. Unique to all these works is an harmonic vocabulary imbedded into a formal organization that is precise, logical and certainly not academic in the current sense.
