Each work by Silverman tells a story or relates to her life-long love affair with Manhattan.

"I have had a life-long love affair with the borough of my birth -- Manhattan -- in the city of New York. Here many of my friends live, and here the compositions on this CD originate. Each piece tells its own story." Ms. Silverman holds a BA from Barnard College, an AM from Harvard and a DMA from Columbia. Currently on the faculty of Mannes College The New School for Music, she is a founding member of Music Under Construction and the International Women's Brass Conference. She is the recipient of many awards and commissions and her music has been performed by the Baltimore Symphony and the Brooklyn Philharmonic among many other orchestras and chamber ensembles.

Review:
"All musical composition is autobiographical, consciously or otherwise, on one level or another. Only the best of composers manage to ascend from the specific to the universal. Faye-Ellen Silverman is clearly in that category." (Fanfare)

"Manhattan Stories is an inspiring collection of pieces. ...The listener is invited to let the imagination oscillate from abstract feelings to distinct emotions, to experience the musical organization as well as freedom within that organization, and to bask awhile in the richness of the sounds and words." (International Women's Brass Conference)
