Jonathan Kramer – Five Compositions
Paula Peace (piano); Melanie Cramer (flute); Robert Brown (clarinet/bass clarinet) Mowry Pearson (violin); Pamela Askew (viola); Paul Cohen (cello)
(Leonarda) LE 332, 1990 Release
[Musica Pro Musica] juxtaposes a waltz tune, what appear to be Latin American dance rhythms, a touch of jazz, the ghost of a popular ballad, and other influences in a collage that suggest Charles Ives. Kramer is a skilled craftsman, and his melting pot of different musics works very well. — Cleveland Plain Dealer
The main point about Kramer’s Renascence is that it is fun. There is only one clarinet on stage…but by the time this piece starts cooking there are more than a dozen tape-recorded clarinet lines in the works, all swinging like Benny Goodman and doodling in other jazz-like rhythms on the same six notes. — Cincinnati Enquirer
[Atlanta Licks:] A delightful adventure in sound, with exciting solo ‘licks.’…The innovative music has strong jazz overtones — Atlanta Journal-Constitution
