Notes and Editorial Reviews

Born in Wisconsin and a resident of Germany since 1969, Gloria Coates has been composing for over fifty years. Her work is complex, filled with canons, palindromes, polyrhythms, dissonances, glissandi and is distinguished by a wide expressive and emotional range. Her first CD on Tzadik presents a varied program of music for solo piano, a string quartet, her exciting violin concerto, a piece for bass and piano and a fabulous piece for two tuning guitars. An historic release by one of the world’s most courageous and original musical pioneers! Born in Wisconsin and a resident of Germany since 1969, Gloria Coates has been composing for over fifty years.
