Description: Based on the repertoire of a ninetieth birthday concert for the composer, this disc offers a comprehensive cross-section of her mature works from the 1960s onward, after she adopted dodecaphony and adapted it for her own purposes, with rich chordal harmony and a strong sense of tonal centers. A poetic miniaturist, Mamlok writes succinct, highly expressive pieces full of character, from the rather tonal-sounding aphorisms of 2000 Notes to the 'polyphony' of interlocking solo lines in Polyphony I - very much like Carter's late miniatures - to the tension between and almost, but not quite, resolution of opposing ideas in the Rhapsody and Confluences.
