Notes & Reviews:

Composer David Patterson is on the faculty at the University of Massachusetts Boston. He was a recipient of a Fulbright Scholars Award and the Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award. Patterson received his Ph.D. from Harvard and studied with both Olivier Messiaen and Nadia Boulanger in Paris. His compositions have been described as "a clear and natural blending of many different kinds of music." Of special note on this recording of his chamber music are two works written for James Pellerite, former principal flutist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and now a virtuoso on the Native American flute. One work is for Native American flute and percussion, while the other is for Native American flute and chamber ensemble.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
David Patterson's program includes a number of divergent works. 'In Memoriam Messiaen' is a full sounding, bird-song using, homage for wind ensemble with dense, colorful chords and solo chimes. The outcome is dramatic, playful, heartfelt, and winking while maintaining a light, bright mood as it progresses.
