HASH(0xa200fd5c) out of 5 stars Sonic Blockbuster, Trombone Masterpiece Sept. 3 2007
By Jeff Dunn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the best collection available of the music of Christopher Rouse, one of the most audience-pleasing Americans writing today. It is a reissue of a deleted RCA release.

The Trombone Concerto won the Pulitzer Prize for its mastery of form and content--but it also speaks as a heartfelt tribute to the memory of Leonard Bernstein.

"Gorgon" is an astounding creation, one of the loudest pieces ever written, adding 75 percussion instruments to the full orchestra. Its frightening relentlessness will test the capacity of the best stereo system. Rouse does you blotto with the ostinato. Not for the squeamish; but for those who can take it, it may well prove to be the most exciting investment of a lifetime.

"Iscariot" is Rouse's take on the many facets of emotion engendered by jealousy, starting with the flash/burn of the initial discovery and continuing on with self-pity, anger and eventual reconcilation with emotional facts of life.

All three pieces are masterpieces, essential for the library of anyone who wishes to be familiar with trends in classical music over the last 25 years.

HASH(0xa2d545f4) out of 5 stars Review of Rouse Trombone Concerto Dec 15 2009

The trombone concerto won the Pulitzer prize. I'm surprised that the
album info on Amazon doesn't note this.

Pounding percussion and brass -- loud and raucous. I love it, particularly
'Gorgon'1q. Modern but not dissonant. Highly recommended for
the adventurous 2oth century music listener. (It may be more violent than
Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.)

Actually, for some reason I found this work interesting even though I did not like it, Go figure. I suppose it is old age creeping up on me.
