Dave Thomas

The music of David Bennett Thomas has been called “immediately engaging ...meticulously structured ... playful, soulful, technically dazzling, and acutely communicative” (Philadelphia Music Makers); “convincing on both structural and emotional levels ... music that speaks with no pretension” (The Classical Source); and “concise and comprehensible, though he doesn't talk down to the listener or subscribe to any isms ... this is a composer with an individual voice” (American Record Guide). He has written in many genres, including works for chorus, solo voice, orchestra, chamber groups, piano, and jazz ensembles.

Thomas writes in harmonically and rhythmically complex styles, requiring a high level of virtuosity. He tailors each work to the idiom of the medium for which it is written. His music is intense, yet ingratiating. An overview of his works reveals stylistic and artistic integrity. The artists, all highly successful in their respective fields, perform with passion, commitment, and great skill. Thomas has a distinct, effective musical voice that deserves to be heard.
