PRISM Quartet with Greg Osby "Dedication" CD

DEDICATION features music composed in celebration of the PRISM Quartet’s 20th anniversary by a slew of today’s top composers. The composers come from near (Philly-based Matthew Levy, founding member of PRISM) and far (Donnacha Dennehy, a central figure on the Irish new music scene). They range from some of our most highly visible, award-winning figures (William Bolcom, Chen Yi, Jennifer Higdon, Libby Larsen) to emerging voices (Roshanne Etezady and Dennis DeSantis were both beginning their careers in 2004). And of course, there are friends of the ensemble like sax player Greg Osby, who adds his alto to the mix, and one-time PRISM member Tim Ries. From the frantic, florid playing required by Gregory Wanamaker’s “speed metal organum blues” to the melancholy of Renée Favand-See’s “isolation,” this set of birthday dedications offers a kaleidoscopic portrait of one of the essential contemporary music groups of our time.
