Testimonials

  • [We Are Joy – a piano concerto with choir and chamber orchestra] is wonderful, immediately attractive, full of sweeping lyricism, and with a knockout ending…is intensely emotional, and deserves to be heard and enjoyed again and again.

  • Jenni Brandon’s Songs of California contains some of the most imaginative, ingratiating recent chamber music for winds I’ve heard. Delightful!

  • Ryan Romine

    Composer Jenni Brandon’s Spider Suite is a wonderfully descriptive five-movement work…Brandon is a master at balancing the beautiful and the silly, at finding that middle ground where storytelling is best. – review of Ceora Winds CD Postcards.

  • Kenneth Bradshaw

    Jenni Brandon is a fresh voice in classical composition…this CD from a talented young voice should be in your collection.  Ms. Brandon is a composer to watch in the years ahead.
