Notes and Editorial Reviews

This disc displays Eric Ewazen's exceptional talent for brass writing.

"Eric Ewazen is an important American composer active in the latter twentieth and early twenty first centuries. He has demonstrated considerable versatility in his output, producing orchestral, piano, vocal, chamber, and various other works. He has favored brass and wind instruments in many of his compositions, however, and exhibits a unique style often tinged with the spirit of Copland, Creston, and other iconic American composers, and a melodic facility one critic compared to Prokofiev's, not that there is anything particularly Russian about his music..." - Robert Cummings, All Music Guide

Eric Ewazen's music is
Read more influenced by a variety of styles and eras, including the motoric rhythms of the Baroque, the formal clarity of the Classical period, and a harmonic language that uses diatonic and even modal voicings. This disc displays his exceptional talent for brass writing, and makes a perfect companion for the Stentorian Ensemble CD (Albany 948) that features his Myths and Legends. James Lebens is the ideal interpreter of these works for trombone by Eric Ewazen.
