Canzonas Americanas marries two postmodern forces – American composer/clarinetist ‘Derek Bermel’ and the contemporary chamber band ‘Alarm Will Sound’.

Sharing a joy for stylistic eclecticism, complexity, and clashing dissonances, they form a remarkable recording that combines Bermel’s wild range of instrumental colors with the tight rhythmic ensemble that his music demands.

“Bermel tends to build his music layer by layer, creating exhilaratingly complex instrumental textures, which Alarm Will Sound realise with great panache. It's not always clear whether some of the more cheesy moments (like the ending of that first Canzona) are tongue-in-cheek or not, but there's no doubt about the wit of the song cycle Natural Selection”
