Description

Review:

"[Playing and Being Played] did what precious few pieces of contemporary music do - light a fire under the audience. With good reason. Daniel Brewbaker's Playing and Being Played has the right stuff.

...In a single, compact movement, Brewbaker's concerto packs a remarkable amount of thematic material that is developed clearly and arrestingly. From its misty opening measures to a breathless dash to the finish line, the score travels through a variety of moods with a relentless energy that, even at its slowest, quietest moments, exudes a powerful tension.

At one of those soft spots, a lyrical theme, simple and direct, emerges from the violin. Many a composer, past or present, would envy its haunting pull.

Repin played the heck out of the heartily applauded new work, while Judd assured smooth interaction and effective balances between the soloist and the taut ensemble."

- Tim Smith, The Baltimore Sun
