Notes and Editorial Reviews

If Ward is new to you, this CD is a good first choice.

One of the last of a great generation of American composers.

A recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in 1962 for the opera The Crucible, Robert Ward is one of the last of a great generation of American composers whose music is full of patriotic high spirits and optimism, with equal measures of warmth and heartfelt melody.

-----

"This album features a fine selection of works by Robert Ward. This is well-crafted music of immediate melodic appeal that is often luminously scored. On repeated listening Ward's music doesn't weaken and is actually quite
Read more distinctive within a general Western American symphonic style that might remind you of Copland or Harris. If Ward is new to you, this CD is a good first choice." - Greg La Traille, ArkivMusic.com
