Composer Jeffrey Stadelman's unusual, arresting, exacting musical voice has evolved over 25 years, amounting to a complex musical practice that suggests no obvious counterpart. MESSENGER, an all-Stadelman release on Navona, includes a variety of his orchestral, instrumental, and electroacoustic works: Messenger, a major orchestral work of symphonic scale full of kaleidoscopic morphing, jarring switchbacks, galloping tuttis, and a still, poetic center; Nine Bagatelles for piano and recorded sound, a conversation between the piano and electronic distortions; Evans House for flute, a series of observations of suburban Buffalo; and the electroacoustic Koral 19, a fragment of a piece involving hundreds of segments.
