Kenneth Fuchs is one of America’s leading composers and his music is performed worldwide. After writing Falling Man, a work for baritone voice and orchestra based on the post-9/11 novel by Don DeLillo, Fuchs explored the principal theme in his rigorously developed Falling Canons for solo piano. Falling Trio grows out of the same theme, and from its ethereal opening presents a series of seven fantasy variations. String Quartet No 5 is an exciting, large-scale work that explores the contrapuntal possibilities of a single ‘American’ theme.

Review By Gary Higginson,MusicWeb International,September 2013

The present disc begins with Falling Canons for solo piano. It is magically played by the amazingly versatile Christopher O’Riley also known as a jazz pianist and radio and TV presenter in America.

This disc also includes a Piano Trio entitled Falling Trio, which is also a set of seven variations and is from the same stable as ‘Falling Canons’. I found the trio very moving right from the start and its length is just ideal for its material. The performance is given by the group, Trio21, which commissioned and first played it. What we hear has the complete feeling of total authority, both technically and musically.

Review By Grego Applegate Edwards,Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review,May 2013

This is the sort of album that seems to well epitomize what a composer is about. And Fuchs’ music is singular enough that what is going on in his music stands out with a kind of hard-drawn clarity.

The Debray String Quartet sounds great in their performance of what is a very pleasing, moving piece [Fifth String Quartet].

The other two works on the program relate to each other as offshoots of a previous work, “Man Falling,” written for baritone and orchestra after Don DeLillo’s novel touching on post-9-11 issues.
