"the voice of authority - through principal French horn Richard Burdick"

Sacramento Bee
pg. D52/1/94
“Nowlen and Burdick produced gloriously noble sounds. There was also fine work from . . .” Cantata 212 “which has a horn obligato . . . well played by Burdick”.

January 17, 1994
The Sacramento Bee
From “Gospel: Symphony really swings” A brilliant arrangement by Brian Gaber and Richard Burdick”

Clark Mitze KXPR radio
January 20, 1992
“Burdick’s orchestration made effective use of both instrumental and choral effects”

Brenda Chin Concert / Lecture Series City College of San Franscico. March 1989
“How did he do that? That’s what every body was asking after hearing you perform your “Sculpture IV” piece.”

International Horn Society Newsletter,
 June 1988
“Haydn with the spirit of Scriabin”

The Berkeley Gazette
April 1983
"Richard’s Horn solo . . . was particularly well done."

The Berkeley Gazette
April 1983
“Richard Burdick who plays French horn with the group has written a fascinating Suite that is a study in textures. . . . While the music is not programatic, the titles, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, are suggestive and the music leads the listener down a “garden path” of audial images that “conjur up” visual pictures.

“This CD proves that what may have sounded weird sixty years ago now sounds normal and often beautiful.”

There are many lesser-known 20th century composers, who have great worth!

Let’s not forget the music of:
Wendell Otey
Alan Hovhaness
Henry Cowell
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco
Gunther Schuller.
