"Devil in the Flesh and Other Pieces," the latest recording of music by Jay Reise, has appeared on Albany Records (www.albanyrecords.com). The CD has a number of connections to Hamilton College: Reise graduated from Hamilton in 1972 and later served on the Hamilton faculty; the program notes are by Comparative Literature Professor Peter Rabinowitz; and one of the works, Satori, received its world premiere at Hamilton in 1995, when it was performed by soprano Deborah Massell '80 and Sar-Shalom Strong, currently a lecturer in piano.
