Notes and Editorial Reviews

Paul Lansky is one of the most prominent and accessible modern American composers. He writes primarily for the medium of computer-generated sound, and has made advances in many technical areas, especially those of Linear Prediction Coding, which he developed for his own first computer-generated pieces. He has written that his “[his] goals are not mainly to achieve relative mastery of one form or another… as they are to experiment.” Because of this, his compositions are quite varied in style and form. This recording presents three premiere recordings of Paul Lansky's recent chamber music. "The Long and Short of It" for Woodwind Quintet was inspired by the third movement adagio of Mozart’s Serenade for Winds K. 361. The album also Read more includes his guitar duet “Talking Guitars,” and “Pieces of Advice” for horn and piano. Read less
