Talk with Kathleen Bader

Funded in part through New Music USA's MetLife Creative Connections program. Before our recent Baltimore show, we got a chance to sit down with composer Kathleen Bader for an in-depth talk about her music, text writing, and love for Arizona.  Kathleen was commissioned by us for our CD project, resulting in "Two Songs for The Sounds Outside". We'll post again tomorrow to share a short talk and a performance video of her piece.

Reviewed by I Care If You Listen


David Pearson wrote a review of our cd Emerging Voices over at the wonderful blog I Care If You Listen!
"On the whole I think this disc is a great success at putting the saxophone and soprano voice together, and will hopefully influence saxophonists to put greater attention to beauty and blend. The timbres and phrasing of both Herchen and Halliday reflect a lot of hard work and contemplation, and the composers likewise have molded their music to the unique qualities of this duo."
