Our second recording of the distinguished composer Bernard Hoffer's music features his chamber music.

Formed in 2004 the trio Neoteric, made up of faculty members at Southern Illinois University, began their relationship with Bernard Hoffer through a request for works in the American Music Center newsletter. After writing two works for their ensemble, Hoffer suggested the idea of more substantial works, hence the Concerto di Camera and Divertimento included on this recording. Born in Switzerland, Hoffer is a graduate of Eastman where he studied composition with Bernard Rogers and Wayne Barlow. He has written extensively for films, television, and commercials for which he has won several Emmy nominations and Clio Awards. He scored the hit children's cartoon series Thundercats and Silverhawks.

Review:
"The audience for this music is going to be people who are fond of strings, piano, or the horn or bassoon. But it's also going to be new music lovers who are looking to expand their understanding of what is going on today." (American Record Guide)

"The members of Neoteric and their assisting musicians play beautifully with fine musicality and expression. I commend them for branching out and making strides at creating a repertoire for this ensemble. This CD should be both an excellent resource and an inspiration for bassoonists, hornists and cellists." (The Horn Call)
