Notes and Editorial Reviews

Frank Ticheli’s award-winning Symphony No. 2 has been described as ‘uninhibited, high-flying and intensely rhythmic’ (South Florida Sun-Sentinel). Angels in the Architecture was inspired by the forms and ornamentation of the Sydney Opera House, contrasting divine light with turbulent darkness to pose the unanswered question of existence. Ticheli is joined by his two major influences in first recordings of Pulitzer Prize-winning Leslie Bassett’s terrific Nonet and the potent messages of 2007 Musical America Composer of the Year William Bolcom’s First Symphony for Band.
