Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

"Sidney Corbett is a native of Chicago. He was educated at UC San Diego and at the Yale School of Music. Corbett studied with Gyorgy Ligeti in Hamburg. He has composed in Europe for over 20 years. Sparsely melodic, refined, subtle,”cool”, rarely venturing beyond pppp, Corbett’s chamber music often reveals its jazz and rock roots. There is an optimism found in Corbett. He revels in the relationships of gradations of tonality . Frequently bare wisps of melody are extremely uplifting. Wonderfully unpredictable combinations of instruments (such as bass clarinet and banjo in Que hora in Paradiso) are used. Corbett luxuriates in the sound of
Read more his instrumental combinations. Tenderness and humor are abundant, and a buoyancy permeates this music. Here is tidy, delicate chamber music played with much panache and dedication by the excellent German performers with the fine guitarist, Seth Josel. The disc is very well recorded in extremely lifelike multichannel surround sound, and is highly recommended."
