Notes and Editorial Reviews

These works, scored for a wide-range of ensembles, attest to Gander’s compositional craft and finesse. His diverse influences outside the world of contemporary composition and classical, European ‘high’ culture, e.g. the jazz of Dave Brubeck, the rock of Frank Zappa, hip-hop and horror movies, shape his music in such a way that it produces a novel, yet deeply authentic sound.

Upon listening to Gander’s music for the first time, one is struck immediately by its force and accompanying humor. At times both programmatic and absolute, the compositions’ buoyant might, present in the works for orchestra, as well as those written for chamber ensembles, make for a rewarding and enjoyable listen.
