Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Adler's music recalls Berio's series of compositions called Sequenzias. Each is an essay into a particular instrument's (including the human voice's) postmodern possibilities. These pieces, like Berio's, are probing and highly theatrical essays - a study of not merely what is but of what can be. This is decidedly not easy listening. The music is rigorous in its relentless logic - exploratory and trailblazing - utilizing the virtuosic gifts of each particular player. In all cases it succeeds and ought to be studied...and savored." - William Zagorski, Fanfare
