Universal Edition Composer
“This new BIS release is an unexpected joy.…Palumbo’s music is shockingly good. He’s figured out how to update traditional musical charms using every tool in the box and create something pleasingly new. The Concerto Barocco is a stunner, like a Bach harpsichord concerto updated to the present. It never stops moving and throwing delicious harmonic twists at you. And it manages to use the harpsichord for timbral beauty and energy without being coy, unlike a composer such as Poulenc. The centuries seem to float in and out of the music here like holograms: Scarlatti, Bach, Vivaldi. Then all sorts of slithery quarter-tone mystery intrudes. But there is always a warm, jovial, unifying quality to the music. You could substitute it for the Britten Simple Symphony or the Tippett Double Concerto or one of the Bloch concerto grossos and not drive away your audience… Palumbo makes sure inner voices are always moving forward in his textures. And if a cadenza by itself might bore, the composer sees to it other instruments intrude upon it and keep things moving… BIS has done its usual sonic wonders. Hats off to Palumbo!” Fanfare Magazine (July/Aug 2018)
