An overview of Utah composer Morris Rosenzweig's chamber music, given terrific performances by the Canyonlands Ensemble and assisting artists.

Morris Rosenzweig was born in New Orleans, where he grew up among tailors, merchants and strong-willed women of an extended family which has lived in southern Louisiana since the mid 1890s. His catalog of over 50 entries features works for orchestra, various chamber ensembles, compositions for live instruments and electronics, two song cycles, two piano cycles, solo pieces and one opera. This current Albany compilation represents his latest approach to an array of chamber music genres. The University of Utah named him University Professor in 1999, and additionally honored him with a Distinguished Scholarly and Creative Research Award in 2003. He is an active conductor and coach, and has worked for many years with the Chamber Players of the League-ISCM in New York and the Canyonlands Ensemble in Utah. Presently Professor of Music at the University of Utah - where he teaches composition, theory, contemporary performance practice, and directs the Maurice Abravanel Visiting Composers Series - he formerly held positions at Queens College and New York University. He was educated at the Eastman School of Music, the University of Pennsylvania, and Columbia University.

Review:
"[Morris Rosenzweig] writes music that is imaginative, and he creatively exploits instruments to their full potential. His works are expressive and compelling, and his music is structurally complex yet at the same time succinct and lean." (Deseret Morning News)

"Morris Rosenzweig's program presents beautiful, colorful, supple, lyrical, atonal music." (American Record Guide)
