Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Arthur Levering (b. 1953) is a musical mosaicist, creating patterns within patterns whose meanings change with the perspective of the listener. Moments of piquant color and gesture engage us on one level, but over time, and in combination with other such ideas they spin out the broad narrative, the winsome or lacerating or warm or athletic trajectory of phrase and episode. The works on this new collection - for orchestra, string orchestra, large mixed ensemble, small ensemble with voice, and for two pianos - cover a wide expressive and technical range, but the composer's elegant and rigorous use of patterns and their transformations is a consistent source of rich and vibrant energy. Various influences can be felt: rock music, with its ever-present pulse and energy, but also Baroque music, minimalism, and Indonesian gamelan. Particular composers, too, might be cited - Franco Donatoni, Luciano Berio, György Ligeti. Still, Levering's work has its own distinctive sense of wit, its own pacing, and particular tendencies of instrumental color-its own voice.


"Intense, compact, and demanding on its listeners, but which gives great reward. Performances are all superb, projecting just the right tautness and exactitude of execution to bring out the beauties of the music." --Fanfare Magazine

"The music of Boston composer Arthur Levering features a wonderful blend of rhythmic vitality, instrumental color and expressive urgency - and this new compilation disc offers as good an introduction as any to Levering's work. The repertoire here ranges from ambitious orchestral tone poems to intimate chamber works, all of them marked by an inviting combination of delicacy and robustness." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Arthur Levering has been active as a composer for more than three decades, during which time he has created works full of enchanting and vibrant soundscapes. This recording, performed to the dramatic hilt by the Boston Modern Orchestra Project and other superb artists, focuses on pieces from the past decade, confirming his continued exploration of colourful territory." --Gramophone Magazine
