Composer Joel Hoffman writes that this collection of his chamber music is named Three Paths because each of the three works follows a distinctly unique pathway. He has explored a fairly broad variety of musical dialects over the course of his composing career and these works reflect that exploration. Hoffman’s music draws from such diverse sources as Eastern European folk musics and bebop and is pervaded by a sense of lyricism and rhythmic vitality. He has received awards from the American Academy-Institute of Arts and Letters and the National Endowment for the Arts, among others. He is on the faculty at the College-Conservatory of Music of Cincinnati, a guest faculty member at the China Conservatory in Beijing and the artistic director of MusicX.

 "...Recommended as evidence of a composer who continues to pursue a personal vision without relying on tricks, superficial novelties or shifting stylistic tastes."

Robert Carl - Fanfare  - May/June 2013


"...All of this material seems well played and the idiom is tonal and unthreatening. It is all plesant to listen to, particularly if you are in a meditative mood ..."

David W Moore - American Record Guide - January/February 2013
