Notes and Editorial Reviews

Baritone Robert Peavler takes the opportunity with this recording to offer a program by American composers of the generation from Charles Ives and John Duke (to name but two) to those carrying the torch forward as the modern composers of art song. Kirke Mechem (b.1925) and Dominick Argento (b.1927) are a generation older than Thomas Pasatieri (b.1945) and Timothy Hoekman (b.1954).

Robert Peavler is on the voice faculty at Eastern Michigan University. An active recitalist and soloist, Dr. Peavler consistently programs and champions new works by American art song composers. His collaborator, Arlene Shrut, is on the faculty of Juilliard and Manhattan School of Music and is an admired keyboard performer.
