ANNAPOLIS ORCHESTRA’S PLEASANT PASTORALS: KUSTER PREMIERE IS EASY ON THE EARS

Nestled among three warhorses was a world premiere by New York composer Kristin Kuster. Her offering–Beneath This Stone–was a pleasant, conservative work, with slower sections redolent of the British pastoralists and faster music in the American eclectic style of Michael Torke and John Adams. It featured prominent (and well-played) solos for the piccolo and violin, and a striking passage where two trumpets grappled and jousted. The work is not laborious, carries the ear along and ends just when it should.
