A melding of both classical and popular idioms by this ingenious composer.

Joshua Rosenblum has composed extensively for both the concert hall and the theater. In addition to the works on this CD, he has written pieces on commission for trumpeter Philip Smith of the New York Philharmonic, flutist Kathleen Nester of the New Jersey Symphony and for French hornist Eric Ruske, one of Albany's premiere artists. For the theater, Rosenblum wrote the score for the acclaimed cult hit Off-Broadway musical, Fermat's Last Tango. He has also conducted the orchestras for such Broadway shows as Miss Saigon, Wonderful Town and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The works on this disc are a melding of both classical and popular idioms, with many inspired by or commissioned from several of the musicians involved.

Review:
"Much of Rosenblum's musical vocabulary comes from, or crosses over into, the popular vernacular, with catchy syncopations and lanky, swinging rhythms, but a sign should be posted saying 'Watch Out: Keen Intelligence at Work."'" (Opera News Online)
