Modern, introspective works for Chamber ensemble.

David Liptak was born in Pittsburgh in 1949. After teaching composition and theory at Michigan State University and the University of Illinois, he joined the faculty of the Eastman School in 1987, where he has chaired the composition department since 1993. In 1994, he was commissioned by the Fromm Music Foundation to write a trumpet concerto for the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, which was premiered in 1996. In 1995, he was awarded the Elise L. Stoeger Prize by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in recognition of distinguished achievement in the field of Chamber music composition. Other discs of his music appear on Gasparo and Opus One.

Review:
"David Liptak writes very well for the violin. There is a lot for the player to do that challenges her musicality and technique. The music itself is not terribly original or compelling, though there are moments of beauty in most of the pieces. The playing is on a very high level indeed, with violinist Catherine Tait (late wife of the composer) the anchor of the proceedings. Albany's sound is clear and crisp but not too close-up."
