Notes & Reviews:

"Altough Rorem is a tonal composer, who along with Bernstein defended tonality long before it was fashionable to do so, his harmonies are often spikier and more adventurous than those of the 'new tonality' school that is now the rage. Compared to Rorem, who alludes to the past but sustains an utterly 20th Century voice, many of these composers are wimps. It is a strange time when Ned Rorem seems like the avant-garde." - Sullivan, ARG
