Startlingly lovely music for chamber ensembles from this young composer.

The music of the young Iraqi-American composer Karim Al-Zand has been called "strong and startlingly lovely" by the Boston Globe. His compositions are wide-ranging, from settings of classical Arabic poetry to scores for dance and pieces for young audiences. Many of his works explore connections between music and other arts. He holds degrees from Harvard and McGill Universities and is currently on the faculty of the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University. This recording, his first for Albany Records, shows his love for chamber music and small instrumental ensembles.

Review:
"[Karim Al-Zand's] music is romantic and imaginative. ...Al-Zand's handling of instruments is very idiomatic, and the music is attractive. ...It is a fine program by a talented composer." (American Record Guide)
