Adler: Cantos

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The winner of many prestigious awards for composition, Samuel Adler is also Professor emeritus at the Eastman School of Music. His Canto series was written to meet the challenge of providing concert etudes for every orchestral instrument. This program presents the complete Cantos for solo string instruments, exploring the great possibilities in each instrument from virtuoso feats to lyrical poignancy, 'moody' pensiveness to sharply observed wit and humor. The duet Close Encounters expresses ecstatic feelings of love, while the string trio Five Snapshots reflects contrasting scenes of nature. Samuel Adler's Of Musique and a selection of other chamber works can be found on Naxos 8.559602. His Fifth Symphony can be heard on 8.559415.

A prolific and gifted composer, Samuel Adler became professor of composition at North Texas State University, in 1957, and in 1966 moved to the Eastman School of Music, serving for twenty years from 1974 as head of the composition department. He went on to teach at The Juilliard School and has won considerable distinction in his long career, with a series of compositions that range from the diatonic to the serial.
