Lush, romantic chamber works.

This is the second volume in the Albany Records' series devoted to the music of Stephen Dankner (see TROY067 - Songs of Bygone Days). Dankner's music is highly accessible and very well crafted. He studied with Roger Sessions and Vincent Persichetti. Currently he is the chairman of the Music Department at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts, which is an arts preparatory high school. He is also on the faculty of Loyola University's College of Music where he teaches composition and electronic-computer music.

Review:
"This easy-to-listen-to, well-constructed music on this CD conjures conflicting reactions for this listener. There is no denying the well-wrought classical contours and melodic richness of these pieces. Stephen Dankner utilizes carefully honed skills to create art that is a pleasure to admire...But what is the composer's point of view? Performances and recordings are first-rate." (Fanfare)
