If you like your chamber music terse, pithy, kinetic and explosive; if you like your food knotty, chewy; if you like your movies thoughtful and ingenious; then ask your store clerk if Equipoise is right for you. Four dense works, two each by Texan Joseph Klein and Marylander William Kleinsasser, offer you the kind of experience formerly reserved for the likes of Euro icons Berio, Ligeti and Xenakis.
The virtuoso chops of star sax player John Sampen, rugged virtuoso ensembles, and a computer working overtime collide in this frenzy of campus energy. 20th Century ensemble repertoire got a kick in the rear just before the bell sounded.
[Klein] The most impressive ensemble work I've heard from a young composer in a long time... This is fine music from two composers who seem certain to make even more of a splash as they gain experience
