The vibrant and deeply moving works of Stephen Albert, Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-winning composer, invoke the memory of his distinctive musical voice. His untimely death in 1992 inspired Bruce MacCombie's Elegy and Jonathan Leshnoff's quintet; these plus the work by colleague Sebastian Currier give a sense of the continuing illumination of his musical vision.
