Notes and Editorial Reviews

Since their formation in 2009, The Bowers Fader Duo (Jessica Bowers, mezzo-soprano, and Oren Fader, guitar) has commissioned over 20 new works from American composers representing a wide range of compositional aesthetics. Between Us All, their debut recording, features performances of works by Paul Salerni, Scott Wheeler, Tim Mukherjee, and David Claman, that highlight the duo's precise realization of the musical score and expressive communication of the texts. "The afternoon ended with the stylish pairing of husband and wife team of Jessica Bowers, mezzo-soprano and Oren Fader, guitar. They are clearly “in sync” on stage as a pairing, here interpreting songs of Brahms, Mozart, and Salerni with excitement and skill. Her diction and Read more communicative skills were a master class in song interpretation while his accompaniment was sensitive and playful." (Ladd Boris, soundwordsight.com) Read less
