“The Composer speaks to the nature of an artist’s inspiration as something that can transcend personal will or earth-bound concerns. [I] had in mind Beethoven as an example of this quality of receptivity to a heaven-sent creative impulse. Mr. Conte’s music captures the spirit of the text with the usual inimitable accuracy of feeling.” -John Stirling Walker
