From the dean of West-coast composers, first recordings of 5 pieces spanning 1986 to 2003.

"To experience fully the music of Rudolf Komorous, one has only to listen attentively. The
emotional language of the music is readily apparent and on the surface. And yet, the
unpredictable juxtapositions of events, the turns of phrase, the surprising chords, and the
unusual sounds delineate a landscape which encompasses a wide range of feelings and
sensitivities. Each piece exists as an original self-contained artifact in which are embedded
associations and references drawn from visual imagery, people, events, or cultural practices
from another time and place. The music is a product of its own time, while being timeless in its
extensions to other worlds, whether historical or imaginary." - Owen Underhill
