Notes & Reviews:

Although he is best known for his dramatic orchestral works, Jacob Druckman also composed a sizeable body of chamber music. The Second String Quartet was written during his most experimental phase, and calls upon its performers to utilize a host of unorthodox techniques, whereas the Third Quartet of fifteen years later is a much more classical affair. 'Reflections on the Nature of Water' for solo marimba, played on this recording by Druckman's son Dan, is a series of etudes in homage to Debussy's piano preludes. 'Dark Wind,' one of Druckman's last works before his death in 1996, is remarkably concentrated and concise, and is a fitting summation of all that is finest in his mature style.
