Keith Kramer / Press

“Causality is an exceptionally strong work, and an important contribution to the chamber orchestra literature of our day.”

“A talented composer making his mark on the American scene. ”

David DeBoor Canfield - Fanfare

“Emerge is an exciting and absorbing journey into the mind of a master artist. TOP PICK.”

“This is a composer worth watching.”

“...he has an instinct for orchestration which is imaginative and individual”

“Keith Kramer - Emerge (Double CD, Navona, Classical) If you're looking for a big mental blast of music that goes all over the map and back, you will want to check out Emerge.”

“...rich and rewarding work.”

"...imaginative orchestral colours, fascinating textures and evocative harmonies."

“Keith Kramer is an uncompromising composer. He is also a most inventive one who is very much in tune with not only melody and harmony but also with the contribution that instrumental sonority can play in any musical discourse.”

“Keith Kramer’s Emerge [has] fine sonic colours to offer. Actually, Emerge stands out of the lot, thanks to its breadth, assurance, and unpretentiousness.”

“[Causality] is a fascinating work, with an ever-evolving sound world. Kramer's orchestration is imaginative and there are some exhilarating moments, not least the widespread use of harmonic glissandi and tremolo effects at the end of the first movement.”

“Tension is paramount in Emerge; and the numerous trills, glissandos, flutter tongues, and growls intensify the mood.”
