Composer Yehudi Wyner performs and conducts on this recording of his music by the Ibis Camerata.

It was Biljana Milovanovic, pianist for the Ibis Camerata ensemble, who conceived this project of recording a group of compositions by Yehudi Wyner. Mr. Wyner performed in one piece (with Richard Stoltzman) and conducted another, but his major contribution was in coaching performers in matters of his style. The music spans 50 years of Wyner's compositional output beginning with the Partita for Piano of 1952 and arriving at Commedia for Clarinet and Piano of 2002. Awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2006, Yehudi Wyner is one of America's most versatile musicians. His compositions include more than 60 works and he has received many commissions and honors in addition to the Pulitzer. He has taught at Yale, SUNY Purchase, Cornell, Harvard and Brandeis. This is the fourth recording by the Ibis Camerata to appear on Albany Records.

Review:
"In a sense, these are modest pieces, but no less enjoyable and interesting for that. ...At first hearing [the music] appears wayward and, it turns out, Wyner is very confident in trusting his intuition...However, the music is often complex, meticulously written and clearly the product of rational conscious processes. That Wyner manages to unite these two parts of his mind so successfully--and originally--is remarkable." (Fanfare)

"This is an attractive program of music by one of our finest composers." (American Record Guide)
