The musical language of the New York-based Arnold Rosner (1945–2013) clothes the modal harmony and rhythm of pre-Baroque polyphony in rich Romantic colours, producing a style that is instantly recognisable and immediately appealing. These four chamber works, all receiving their first recordings, embrace a wide range of emotions, from tragic nobility to buoyant good humour, with Rosner’s use of modality adding a hint of the Orient.

  1. :

    ‘An interesting and unusual disc, then, one that you will enjoy hearing.’

    —Lynn René Bayley, The Art Music Lounge

  2. :

    ‘All the musicians here, including ubiquitous composer Carson Cooman, find empathy and sympathy for this music. They pour their hearts and technique into this often dourly beautiful music.

    A strongly forward recorded image and a well informed and readable essay complete the picture.’

    —Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International
