Michael Tilson Thomas, Alexander Vedernikov

One scarcely expects to run into a living and breathing nienteenth century composerin our time. But that is precisely how Gordon Getty likes to describe himself, and he backs up his self portrayal with an explanation that has the ring of authenticity and blunt honesty.  'Muchof my stuff, if premiered a century earlier, wouldnot have sounded strange,' Getty explained recently.  'I've attended quite a few composers' conferences where I meet people working in a wide range of styles

    Highly recommended, especially for lovers of choral music

"The performances are outstanding. Michael Tilson Thomas leads the San Francisco Symphony and Chorus in both Young America and Annabel Lee, while Alexander Vedernikov leads the Russian National Orchestra along with the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir in the balance of the program. Noteworthy is Getty’s arrangement of Welsh songs; the popular All Through The Night is given a particularly moving performance. Sound quality, as usual from Pentatone, is superb. Highly recommended, especially for lovers of choral music, or anyone that yearns for a bygone age."
