Notes & Reviews:

This disc marks the first commercial recording of the music of Donald Sur - one that is long overdue. Donald Sur was born in Honolulu of Korean parentage. He studied at UCLA, Princeton and Harvard. He resided in the Boston area, teaching occasionally at Harvard, M.I.T. and Tufts. Among contemporary composers in New England, Donald Sur was one of the best known and best loved. His colleagues and friends have universally respected his eclectic style, which reflects a variety of interests but remains unmistakably personal. His music is permeated with a quiet, sometimes bemused expressivity, and simultaneously a structural firmness quite unlike anyone else's today.

”The performances are totally in the spirit of the music, tender but incisive. The narration of The Unicorn and the Lady is presented the way it would be in concert, i.e, amplified in the hall rather than studio mixed. I appreciate this approach, except that the resultant voice is a little bass-boomy, though not too unnatural. David Hoose conducts al works except the Berceuse and the percussion piece. This is a belated discovery for me of an important composer I wish I could have known better. Highly recommended for everyone.”-Fanfare
