Notes and Editorial Reviews
At the age of 92, Ursula Mamlok, who spent many decades living in New York, has returned to her native Germany, where she has been heralded as a master composer. German musicians and concert organizations have taken up her scores, performing numerous concerts and making recordings of compositions from throughout her long career. Bridge Records has been honored to issue dozens of Mamlok's compositions, with the present Volume 5 being, perhaps, the most far reaching to date, containing nine compositions spanning the years 1942-2015. Mamlok's superbly crafted music is economical, dramatic and highly expressive, with unexpected change being the norm.
