Notes & Reviews:

Professor-emeritus at the Eastman School of Music, Samuel Adler has published more than 400 works and has won many prestigious awards. Wild, colourful and complex, 'Pasiphae' was inspired by Jackson Pollack's huge canvas of the same name, while 'Four Composer Portraits' salutes a diverse quartet of great American musicians, and the 'Three Piano Pieces' are dedicated to virtuoso interpreters of Adler's music. 'Of Musique, Poetrie, Art, and Love' sets poems by the 17th-century cavalier poet Robert Herrick. 'Soundings' demands immense technical prowess of the performers, as, in their different ways, do the 'Piano Concerto No. 3' and the 'Flute Sonata'.
