SOLOS is, as this disc’s name implies, a collection of solo works written from 1976 to 1996. It presents another side of American composer Daniel Asia, who until now has been represented on CD mainly by orchestral, ensemble and vocal works. This disc passes over Asia’s largest-scale solo work, a piano sonata that is available elsewhere, and focuses instead on music for less common solo instruments: The Alex Set for oboe, PLUM-Dream Sequence II for flute, ORANGE for viola, Marimba Music, and Dream Sequence I for Asia’s own instrument, the trombone.
