 ...AN I NTERESTING COMPOSER... October 14, 2014 By Zita Carno (Tampa, FL) See All My Reviews "Indeed, an interesting composer, who wrote in various forms. I have heard some of his stuff---a very good suite in D minor after Chopin and a terrific orchestral version of Islamey, done to perfection by Esa-Pekka Salonen. But now he displays a dark side of his own: the symphonic poem Tamara. I heard it recently on the Classical Masterpieces channel, and who thought he had it in him? Tamara (or Tamar)is a legend, whether real or imaginary no one knows,but a legend of an individual I would not hesitate to put up on a Rogues' Gallery wall alongside Dvorak's Noon Witch, Sherlock Holmes' infamous Professor Moriarty, or Kastchei. A killer. Before you listen to this track, lock your doors and activate your alarm system. And enjoy this Ansermet recording as you look around you. OOPS! How could I forget the Sirens---a whole group of the same ilk: killers. Calling the FBI, NICS, Hawaii Five-O..." Report Abuse
