Notes and Editorial Reviews

As always Meyer Kupferman writes his own very interesting program notes for these pieces. "Four Constellations is a duo in four short movements for flute and clarinet. Initially, I approached the work as a study in delicate balances and intensely articulate timbres. Since I have always been interested in night sky-images, I decided to use a few of the heavenly constellations as compositional targets whose mythological reflections offered rich contrasts for my music. O North Star was conceived in four huge movements, with the second comprising a set of five variations on a march theme - which in itself is almost like six little movements. The trio of performers for this work actually plays seven instruments. I composed Dovely Duo as a short Read more encore piece for Laurel Ann Maurer and Russell Harlow to play for the close of their chamber concert at the 1998 Flute Convention in Phoenix. I composed Strata for solo flute a few days after the death of my dear friend Samuel Baron. He was a virtuoso performer, a wonderful conductor, a near musicologist and an insightful analyst who wrote beautifully about music and composers." 760411279029 Symposium SYM 1279 "TOSTI, E.
