Disciplines

One Sheet: 

One may be the loneliest number but Applebaum gives these individuals plenty to keep them occupied. Complexity is not the only kind of occupational therapy going on here; Elegy, for instance, heard here in both its piano and carillon versions, is a ringing dedication to the late Australian composer Keith Humble.

There are some no-slouch soloists doing the Applebaum thing: Steven Schick and Terry Longshore to name but two. And the music ranges from Saturn to Alabama, not just on those beautiful score pages.

Reviews: 

GRAMOPHONE

Complexity, depth and breadth of background, but with a human face. Composers Mark Applebaum, whose creative output spans jazz performance as well as electronic experimentation, here delves back into some plain old-fashioned composition. Despite the breadth of his background though, Applebaum remains remarkably deep… Applebaum is blessed here with some gifted players.. [Discipline] here, all the clever ideas manage to step over into the realm of art.

By Ken Smith

AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE

...The performances are staggering. Those interested in this branch of the relatively youthful American avant-garde will definitely want to follow Mr. Applebaum's progress.
