MUSIC & VISUAL ARTS
WRITING & JOURNALISM
"Stuart Diamond is a refreshingly original composer in that he subscribes to no fashionable school and apparently writes according to his own fancy. His music possesses a dreamy impressionistic quality with long, sinuous melodic lines..."
THE NEW YORK TIMES
"A wonderful trip into the asteroids...a fully symphonic piece of intense dignity and feeling."
"Turning rock and roll into chamber music may be about as elusive a trick as the alchemists' dream of turning lead into gold, but Stuart Diamond, at least to my ears has done it...ahead of his time."
THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR
"Imaginative, visual , linear music the music Tolkien might have written if he had used a piano instead of a pen."
