The Music of Harold Farberman, Vol. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Blair Sanderson
Defining a modern composer's style is often hazardous, especially when eclecticism and experimentation are constantly in play. Harold Farberman's music is resistant to easy categories, for issues of style matter less in his varied works than his dramatic instrumental effects, most often and strikingly deployed in the percussion. His recognition of the scarcity of music for percussion led him to compose symphonic works that depend on huge batteries of these instruments, not for support but featured front and center. In "Re/Collections," the "Concerto for tympani and orchestra," and the "Early Hudson Valley Scenes," Farberman is dynamically engaged in the orchestration of...

Defining a modern composer's style is often hazardous, especially when eclecticism and experimentation are constantly in play. Harold Farberman's music is resistant to easy categories, for issues of style matter less in his varied works than his dramatic instrumental effects, most often and strikingly deployed in the percussion. His recognition of the scarcity of music for percussion led him to compose symphonic works that depend on huge batteries of these instruments, not for support but featured front and center. In "Re/Collections," the "Concerto for tympani and orchestra," and the "Early Hudson Valley Scenes," Farberman is dynamically engaged in the orchestration of percussive effects, and other matters of themes, harmonies, and moods seem secondary to the impressive originality of his writing for the section. Farberman's oboe concerto, "Concerto for Cathy," shimmers with the delicate sounds of bells and rattles, and the jazzy "Double Concerto for single trumpet" or two trumpets would lose much of its "pop concert" appeal without the flashes of color provided by the percussion. The composer ably conducts the Rousse Philharmonic and the Sofia Symphony Orchestra for this disc, Albany's third volume in its series of Farberman's works. The sound quality is decent, though a little unfocused in soft passages in the atmospheric "Early Hudson Valley Scenes."
