ON YOUR CRY WILL BE A WHISPER
H. PINTO, SAO PAULO, BRAZIL
The highlight was Daniel Asia’s ‘Your Cry Will Be a Whisper’, a new addition to the guitar recital repertoire. (Your Cry Will Be a Whisper) is written in a contemporary idiom and the elaborate guitar writing is rare for a composer who is not a guitarist.
ON PLUM-DS II
A. RICH, NEW WEST
(In a concert by the Independent Composers Association in Santa Monica) the music ranged from awful to sublime…I particularly liked Daniel Asia’s Plum DS II, a marvelously spirited, burbling piece.
T. PUTNAM, BUFFALO COURIER-EXPRESS
Beautiful flutey harmony, richness of parts.
ON DREAM SEQUENCE I
A. CLEMENTS, FINANCIAL TIMES
Daniel Asia’s Dream Sequence I for solo amplified trombone…had the merits of brevity and some wit. The composer describes it as the dream of a fictional trombone player…that could hardly fail to have its humorous moments.
