Description: These works span some four decades, but all have in common an advanced harmonic idiom, clarity of texture, rhythmic liveliness and a sense of detailed attention to detail and dramatic form. The composer's concentration on orchestral music in the early 2000s expanded his sense of harmonic color, and the Haiku-based, aphoristic pieces to which he has returned repeatedly since are richer, less harmonically astringent than earlier works. Tributes to other musicians contain references to earlier, more tonal, music, but always absorbed into Casablancas' personal idiom. B3:Brower Trio.
