ASTRAL BLUE CD

As I wrote in a recent issue of ARG, Peter Lieuwen, Professor of Music and Composer in Residence at Texas A & M, writes music with clearly defined melody and jazzy syncopation. His approach is basically classical, with com-pact structures, but there is a romantic under-current of feeling. His harmonies are basically modal ("pandiatonic" is his word), but full of spice. Astral Blue is typical, a nature piece with a delicate evocation of an early morning sky and stars at twilight, full of rippling minimalist rhythm and lyrical interludes.
