Notes & Reviews:

'Solos and Duos' presents an excellent cross-section of his chamber pieces. In 'Solo for Piano,' for example, individual pitch intervals function as subjects of a musical drama, which unfolds within contrasting sections. 'Solo for Tuba' may be thought to "suggest a lifelong struggling to assert itself in what threatens to be a losing battle." The title 'Embers' suggests "remnants of thought...glowing, briefly flaring, dying...until a final reawakening."
