About this Recording

SMITH, L.: Chamber Music - Piano Sonata / Viola Sonata / Suite for Solo Viola / 6 Bagatelles (S. Darling, Grossman)

Best known as the developer of SCORE, the first music notation software program, Leland Smith created a body of musical compositions before turning his focus to computers. A student of Milhaud, Messiaen and Sessions, Smith was active for many years as a woodwind and keyboard performer and served, until his retirement, as a faculty member at Mills College, the University of Chicago, and finally Stanford University. The score to his Six Bagatelles (1964) for piano was the first completely computer-produced edition of music when published in 1971. Focusing on Smith’s chamber music for piano, violin, and viola, this recording presents an introduction to his compelling sound world, full of great character, contrast, and color. Smith’s music seduces with its elegant development of textures and harmonies, its imaginative use of familiar structures, and its sparkling wit and humor.
