Richard Festinger Chamber Music

Earplay; the Laurel Trio; the Alexander String Quartet; Curtis Macomber, violin and Karen Rosenak, piano


  • Program Notes

    "Here now is a most welcome disc... devoted entirely to the chamber music of this California-based composer... The music is complex and prismatic but transparent... ever managing to find a balance between delicacy and introspection on the one hand and rhythmic vivacity on the other... Festinger (unlike far too many of his contemporaries) never resorts to gimmicks... His music remains unsullied and uncompromising, speaking directly to the hearts of those who care to listen."
