Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Rarely has a composer exhibited such an extraordinarily heightened awareness of the very details of music-making, every physical, acoustic and emotional gesture of performance, painstakingly arrived at and indicated with astonishing clarity in the score. Nuance - that is what Donald Martino wished to capture in his music and to pass on - it's the demand he makes of the performer and it's the poignant, comprehensive, detailed world that draws the listener in. The ultimate result is a musical intimacy of great and intricate energy. Some of the best performers of 20th and 21st century music offer beautiful performances of this great composer's music.

"This is a collection of Donald Martino's "Later Works", all from 2004. (He died in 2005.)...These late works remind me more of the music of a composer like Andrew Imbrie than Carter, and listeners drawn to that kind of chromatic classicism might be surprised at how much they like the works offered here...I have never been much of a fan of this composers music, but these often arresting works are definitely worthy of attention. The outstanding performances are by New York's upper new music echelon."-ARG
