Dave Stowell is a fellow who deserves much praise. His compositions are understated models of grace and elegance. His Crazy Chimes is one example. (Here is the score.) There are many others. It is always a great pleasure to listen to music written by living composers, and David Stowell’s music in particular is rewarding for its somehow almost tuneless, smooth flowing vitality. It never sounds forced or arbitrarily “modern”. There is always a unity and cohesiveness to the music which makes it seem as lyrical as any memorable, singable tune. 6 Scenes for Solo Cello is another great listen.
A big Thank You! to Dave for sharing his music with us!
