ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
H. Leslie Adams (b. 1932) is one of the leading (African) American composers in the world. His unique music touches a wide variety of musical tastes and preferences. Adams was born in Cleveland, Ohio, went to school in California, and served many years as a choral conductor, show musical director, and educator, before becoming a full time composer in 1979.

His website at www.HLeslieAdams.com and www.HLeslieAdams.net provides a full background on his life and career. His stagework BLAKE was featured on the VOX Showcase of New York City Opera, and on the National Opera Association programs. His art songs have been sung by leading artists worldwide, in many languages. His orchestral works have been performed by the Prague Radio Symphony, Iceland Symphony, Buffalo Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra and Indianapolis Symphony, to name a few.

Two all-Adams CDs, have become especially popular. "Love Rejoices: Songs of H. Leslie Adams" features the beautiful tenor of Darryl Taylor. It was chosen as one of the ten best year recordings of the American Record Guide, and is now in its Second Edition. His "Twelve Etudes" features the brilliant piano renditions of Adams' piano studies by Maria Corley.

Many critics have observed that they find no other composer writing like Adams in the world. They find it simple yet complex, fun yet serious, spiritual yet nonreligious. Above all, his music touches the heart and soul in a persoanl manner. Now you, too, can experience the wonder and beauty of H. Lesle Adams.

Beautiful recording of lovely contemporary songs
To me the yardstick of a recording is the number of times it's replayed. In this case, I keep it in my car and play a portion of it almost daily. It has a wonderfully uplifting effect, giving me energy and optimism. I consider it to be a real treasure.
