For Your Delight...
Liner Notes   Cat. No. NWCR901     Release Date: 2002-01-01
Atonality, twelve-tone serialism and complex rhythmic structures were new compositional ideas around the time of the First World War. By the 1950s this modernist compositional style was in favor and became the standard of what was written and taught in conservatories and universities. Many classical composers considered lyricism and tonality passé. When I was younger, I performed in the premieres of many pieces that were very difficult to learn and didn’t have much emotional payback for me as a performer. This is not to say that I didn’t like atonal, twelve-tone or serial music. There are composers who have written incredible pieces in this style, starting with Schoenberg, Webern and Berg.…

I am happy to see that many composers who were taught in the modern style still find that their individual voices embrace tonality and melody while using this more abstract musical language to enrich their compositional palettes. The music of several of these composers is represented on this recording. Although each has a very individual style and distinct voice, their music is equally compelling to me. I hope it is enjoyable to you, the listener. — Tom Bogdan, from the liner notes
