Notes and Editorial Reviews

Walter Winslow's music covers a lot of ground, with influences ranging from the classical canon to Tahitian and Aztec folk music. These are all evident in the pieces in this collection, a loving tribute to his music recorded shortly after Winslow's untimely death in 1998.
'Concertati Veneziani,' his last completed work, is a musical tribute to Venice, but within it one can hear a reverent homage to all of European concert music. Strains of dense counterpoint bring the late Beethoven quartets to mind while static moments of sustained harmonics and isolated single-note events reveal it as a twentieth century piece.
Winslow makes a more modern foray into solo clarinet writing in 'The Mirror of Diana,' yet captures a timeless atmosphere
Read more with some primitivist, Stravinskian motives. The six 'Paripari' (Tahitian District Songs) are inspired by the choral music of Tahiti. Written for solo voice and piano, the songs can only hint at the microtonal gliding texture of Tahitian choirs; they are western art songs with Tahitian texts and exotic melodies. Read less
