Notes and Editorial Reviews

A major new release of David Del Tredici's chamber works. One of the most admired and acclaimed composers of his generation, Del Tredici's music is impossible to describe without superlatives. His work is a brilliant splash of emotional color in a contemporary music landscape where monochromaticism is common. This 2-CD set includes five works composed between 2001 and 2013 -- a string trio, string quartet, variations for bass trombone, a duo for violin and bass trombone and Bullycide, a work for large chamber ensemble, inspired by the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard in 1998. The performers are the elite of the new music world and include Del Tredici's nephew, the phenomenal bass trombonist Felix Del Tredici.

March to Tonality presents a David Del Tredici with whom listeners may be less familiar. This collection of chamber works, all recorded for the first time, showcase his dense, dramatic writing for chamber forces. Grand, never gauche, and cunning without camp, Del Tredici toes a fine line in embracing a postmodern aesthetic without the emotional separation of irony.
