Composer Stewart Wallace has written for theater, concert hall, film and ballet, and is most widely known for the 1995 opera Harvey Milk. Yet his music has an engaging, theatrical quality regardless of genre, as demonstrated in this program featuring excerpts from his "L'Cha Dodi" and "Gorilla in a Cage" (a concerto composed for percussionist Evelyn Glennie). Wallace has also collaborated with the British art-rock ensemble Icebreaker, and here we find this facinating group in an excerpt from Michael Gordon's "Yo Shakespeare." Framing this madcap mixture are works by Harold Budd and Mark Clement Pollard.
