About his music, Wallace Berry writes:
“In general, my music is preoccupied with traditional procedures of thematic statement, variation, and development within a tonal order. Except that there are somewhat analogous procedures in very broad, free applications, my works are not concerned with serial techniques. A primary interest is the search for means of affirming tonality i.e., palpable, coherent relationships among the musical materials around established axes — by devices that are both expressive and interesting. I believe that these two adjectives denote qualities to which music has usually aspired and which, indeed, are fundamental to effective works.
