Composer Adam Roberts releases a collection of his chamber music which highlights his depth of expression, lyricism, and powerful command over structure and compositional arc. Featuring performances by andPlay, harpist Hannah Lash, Bearthoven, oboist Erik Behr, and the JACK Quartet, Roberts' music embraces a wide range of influences while integrating them into a focused frame. Called "a powerful success," "arresting," and "amazingly lush," (the Bos-ton Musical Intelligencer), "an attractive mix of the familiar and exotic" (Boston Classical Review), and "invigorating" with a "persistent melodic urge" (American Academy of Arts and Letters), composer Adam Roberts' music has been performed internationally by the JACK and Arditti Quartets, Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, New York New Music Ensemble, Guerilla Opera, Transient Canvas, andPlay, and at festivals such as Wien Modern (Vienna), Tanglewood, the Biennale Musiques en Scène (Lyons), and the 2009 ISCM World Music Days (Göteborg). Honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Fromm Commission, the Benjamin H. Danks Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Leonard Bernstein Fellowship from the Tanglewood Music Center. A dedicated educator, Roberts has taught at Harvard University, Northeastern University, Istanbul Technical University, the University of Georgia, and is currently Assistant Professor of Composition and Theory at Kent State University. In addition to this album, other music by Roberts can be heard on the Tzadik, New Focus Recordings, and Lila Müzik labels.
