Notes and Editorial Reviews

Profound contrasts exist between the two works on this disc - Junk and Jubilee - an Epidrama - and Rubber Court III - The Final Solution. One is a happy-go-lucky, optimistic and bright work; the other, an expression of grief, frustration and disillusionment. Junk and Jubilee was begun in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1980 as the result of a meeting with a local puppeteer. Its first incarnation, as a Punch and Judy show, was staged in June 1984. The composer was dissatisfied with the result and in 1993 rescored the work for full symphony orchestra. This is the version heard on this disc. Now, a word about Rubber Court III - The Final Solution "depicts an all too real situation into which my daughter Willow Allegra - in that year (1988) much Read more too young to have any say in the matter - and myself were dumped." These are the words of the composer. This is a very real opera-drama, satirical, first produced in New York City in 1990. If you know the music of Max Schubel, if you know his personality, then you know what to expect. If you do not, then you are in for a surprise. This disc contains entertaining, heartfelt music that should appeal to anyone who enjoys mainstream American orchestral music. Read less
