Buffalo News review for Facts of Life CD

Mary Kunz Goldman of the Buffalo News raved about David Leisner’s new Azica CD, Facts of Life: “This piece [David Del Tredici’s Facts of Life] should be able to claim a permanent place in the solo guitar repertoire. The memorably melody of the first movement harks back to earlier eras while still retaining an individual sound. The second movement is a fugue inspired by Bach, and Leisner directs the listener through it well by bringing out all the various voices. There is also a sorrowing aria touched off by a break-up, and the suite ends with a gritty flamenco complete with percussion, which the guitarist makes by drumming on the guitar. It’s music you will want to hear over and over…Leisner’s performance throughout the disc is full of finesse.”
