Music of Ursula Mamlok Vol 2

Volume 1 of this series (BRIDGE 9291) presented orchestral, chamber and vocal works. Volume 2 concentrates on the more intimate side of the 86 year old German/American composer’s output, featuring solo works for violin, clarinet, piano and guitar. However, Volume 2 also ranges widely, from piano miniatures played by Garrick Ohlsson, to the sparkling song cycle Der Andreas Garten, based on husband, Dwight Mamlok’s poems; from the impeccably crafted set of guitar intermezzi to Mamlok’s early experimental study for electronic tape, composed at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center in New York. Mamlok, who was a student of George Szell, Stefan Wolpe and Ralph Shapey, writes elegant music- compositions which speak with concision and musicality.
