Notes and Editorial Reviews
Composer Scott Brickman demonstrates the diversity of his inspirations and musical interests on his third full album on Ravello Records. Drawing on a sea of influences, from Baroque dance suites, to the compositional methods of Arnold Schoenberg, to punk rock, the mixture of popular and historic references broadly typifies post-modern American music composition. Two of the pieces of this albu, French Suite and Ninety-Six Strings and Two Whistles, were composed for the ensemble Eight Strings & a Whistle. The latter piece was also written for pianist Beth Levin.
