True to Harbison’s innate spirit of invention, compositional command, and dogma-free musical range, he has concocted something fascinating, a diverse and connective set of 13 miniatures (the last titled 12a, in deference to the “13”-phobic Stein and Schoenberg). Each piece bears a title based on anagrams of Stein’s name, including Note slid near, L.A. trend: noise (a garrulous and exciting blast of piano sound) and Tender as a lion, a suitable impression of the imposing yet affable Stein. Stylistically, we get hints of the influence of Schoenberg — and his miniature-minded pupil Webern — and also Satie (especially in Rise tone, lad!), along with revealing doses of Harbison, Stein himself, and detectable elements of Cheng’s musical persona.
