Often contemplative and occasionally strikingly graphic, The Dreams of Odysseus [by the Brian Webb Dance Company] takes the audience on an odyssey on its own. Carol Johnson’s striking paintings… help set the mood, as does Piotr Grella-Możejko’s haunting soundtrack.

Piotr Grella-Możejko participates with coloratura for Charles – disco(n)notation for baritone saxophone and electronics. He is probably the most known of the composers on this CD. His piece enters the scene with a jolly, vigorous baritone saxophone in a tonal succession that seems clear enough, but displaying a magnitude of different characteristics, with light electronic manipulations and shadings. The piece does not have a very distinct formal scheme. It feels more that this is a musical event that is always going on, which Piotr Grella-Mozejko has tapped in to at a random stretch. Andriy Talpash handles the load with expertise.

This one [Acclamations – Canadian Organ Music] makes my head swim in the most delightful of ways. Each of the composers is either Canadian born or ended up there from elsewhere… The one thing all these composers have in common is that there really is no commonality and, paradoxically, all the commonality in the world. They are all players in our now well-documented musical continuum, and they have all made fine, though quite contrasted contributions to its continuance… The Lachrymae — in memory of September 11, 2001 of Grella-Mozejko alternates pure hymnody with 12-tone technique in what I find to be the most intensely moving offering on this CD.
