Four composers - John Carisi, Eddie Sauter, Christian Wolff, and Stefan Wolpe - create a program of works with a measured balance in the interrelated and contrasting material.

Counterpoise (Carisi / Sauter / Wolff / Wolfpe)

Counterpoise (Carisi / Sauter / Wolff / Wolfpe): Counterpoise (Hat [now] ART)
Label: Hat [now] ART    
Released in: Switzerland    

"It's interesting to note that the title chosen for this carefully plotted program of works, Counterpoise, refers to equivalent powers set in opposition creating a state of balance, and appears in the dictionary in between the words "counterpoint" and "counterpose." There is certainly a measured balance in the interrelated and contrasting material presented here, as well as in the personalities of the composers represented. Moreover, there is a palpable sense of poise (that is, equilibrium, assurance, and tact) in the music itself, which accounts for the equal degrees of spontaneity and inevitability-highlighting the counter-effect of creative tension-that result."-Art Lange
