Notes and Editorial Reviews

Vittorio Giannini (1903-1966) said: "The composer's duty is to express what is in him with the utmost sincerity, with no thought of whether it is original and no desire to make an impression by doing startling things." Dominick Argento (b.1927) said: "I think most composers can be divided into those who feel that the essential function of music is emotional, as opposed to those who find its essential function to be intellectual. I am committed to working with characters, feelings, and emotions." Kerry Turner writes: "My goal is to paint a musical picture, thought or impression as clearly as possible and then communicate it to the listener and the performer, that it might appear in their minds as vividly as if it were on a large movie Read more screen. When the muse comes, it flows like a deep, dark river. Nothing can stop it; not pseudo-intellectualism, or practicality, or technology, or pressure to conform to a certain style, nor the obligation to always find something new." Read less
