Parnassus
Liner Notes   Cat. No. 80306     Release Date: 1980-01-01
"In expressing themselves in a wide variety of surface manners that impress the listener with the sincerity of their musical impulse, embracing viscerally stimulating declamations that range from vividly complicated to starkly plain, from motivically clear to texturally ambiguous, these composers and their colleagues seem to be continuing a direct line from late nineteenth-century European concert music. If the emphasis on pitch, rhythm, and other traditional elements helps identify the style technically, its commitment to phraseological conviction and an expressive surface comes more and more to strike the listener as the hallmark of this sound, with its sparkle, vitality, and continuity. This New York style is a definitive American artistic statement and, as such, a developing national treasure." —Jeffrey Kresky, from the liner notes
