 Great Music is Still Being Written February 14, 2016 By George Pilcher (Westerville, OH) See All My Reviews "While all of the items on this album are quite lovely and cover a period of roughly 78 years from Samuel Barber's "Dover Beach" (1931) to Peter Lieberson's "The Coming of Light" (2009),via John Harbison's "Twilight Music" (1984) and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich's "Quintet for Alto Saxaphone and String Quarter" (2007), it is this last work that impresses the most, and augers well for the future, since Ms. Zwilich is the only living composer of the four represented on this beautifully programmed and performed disc, and she is (thankfully!) still very actively writing music that always has the touch of greatness about it. Anyone listening to these performances will be reassured that great music is still being written, albeit not as often as was once the case." Report Abuse
