Music of David Froom
“David Froom's music will keep you on the edge of your seat trying to guess what will happen next. The works on this disc are diverse, but share a common concern for subverting expectations.” So writes composer Eric Moe about David Froom, born in 1951. Froom says that he revels “in a world where the new can embrace any aspect of a readily available past”, and indeed, Brahmsian gestures and sonorities, Stravinskian rhythms and dislocations, Reichian drive and repetition, and bebop riffs and syncopations all coexist here, forged into one distinctive voice.
