The youthful agility of Samuel Adler - born in Mannheim in 1928 but long since regarded as the dean of American music - would appear to contradict the fact that he reached his 95th birthday in March 2023. This celebration of his productive life - as composer, teacher, writer and conductor - testifies to his ongoing vigour with a programme of songs and piano works composed, for the large part, after his 90th birthday, many of them tributes to musician friends. His music has it's roots in the Neo-Classical clarity of composers like Copland and Hindemith, who were among his teachers, but has a raunchy energy entirely Adler's own - and which would be remarkable in a composer half his age.
