"North Carolina-born Charles Fussell has long been a leader of Boston's new-music scene." Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

"Being Music is another Walt Whitman setting by Fussell, this one for baritone and string quartet. Like the text, the music is florid and appallingly direct, full of life yet full of questions about the puzzle of being. Sylvan sings it fluently and expressively, with an unpretentious casualness that is also intent on meaning. His tonal beauty and spiritual density is matched by the work of the Lydian String Quartet." Richard Dyer, The Boston Globe
