DCD 089 - Lazarof on Laurel

This program we feature works for a Laurel Records release: Chamber Music by Henri Lazarof.

Henri Lazarof has had a remarkable career, always at the forefront of modern expression in the arts. For the past four decades he's been a respected composer and teacher at UCLA. This collection of chamber music is one of four CDs Laurel has released of Lazarof's music.

Lazarof has a very distinctive musical voice that bridges tradition and the avant garde. This CD presents four works for various combinations of instruments, mostly written in the 1980's.

In this podcast we play excerpted movements from these works.
