This seventh disc in the series continues Albany Records' commitment to the music of Irwin Bazelon.

Junctures written in 1979 and Spirits of the Night in 1976, are alike in the sense that the musical materials used in both works are similar with the startling exception of the soprano in Junctures. But the listener will probably experience each of the works as vastly different from one another. Junctures uses the same orchestral forces as Spirits of the Night but sparingly, less overtly. The energy one senses is more subdued, with more "air" surrounding unfolding events. Sunday Silence is a 15-minute work for solo piano completed in November 1989 and premiered by Alan Mandel on October 1, 1990 at Weill Recital Hall in New York. Characteristic of Bazelon's late style, and reflecting the composer's passion for horse racing, it is named for the winner of the 1989 Kentucky Derby and racing horse of the year - Sunday Silence. Concatenations was commissioned by Frank Epstein for the New England Conservatory of Music Percussion Ensemble. The first performance was on May 1, 1977 with Frank Epstein conducting and Burton Fine, violist at Jordan Hall in Boston.
