Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Paul Paccione's (b. 1952) compositions balance a love of "abstract" sound combinations with a vivid sense of lyricism. His teachers have included Harley Gaber, Kenneth Gaburo, William Hibbard, and Eric Richards. His music reflects an interest in tonal color, exact pitch placement, and a reverence for the mystery of unhurried long durations. The first two characteristics are found in the work of Anton Webern and all three characteristics can be found in the work of the late American composer Morton Feldman. The music of these two composers has been studied in depth by Paccione and has had a strong impact on his own compositional thought. These are all world-premiere recordings."-New World Records
