"American Composer Lowell Liebermann (b.1961) has been described by the New York Times as a traditionalist as well as an innovator, and that's certainly true of the music on this exceptional release. Those who remember his remarkable second piano concerto, which appeared on Hyperion (66966) and received a 1998 Grammy Award nomination for Best Contemporary Classical Composition, will not be disappointed with the two piano quintets on this disc...Special accolades should go to pianist David Korevaar, who is not only a technically gifted instrumentalist in the quintets, but a highly sympathetic accompanist in the songs. You'll find clarinetist Jon Manasse and baritone Patrick Mason exceptional musicians who along with their other colleagues here make a strong case for Liebermann's music."
