Fantastic
This is an incredible find. I, like I fear most of m generation, have never really listened to what is called 'new music' before. I was pretty well situated in old standards and smooth jazz.
I bought this CD upon the recommendation of a friend of mine and I must tell you (whomever you are) that I was comnpletely dubfounded with the incredible beauty and depth of the music on this recording.
There are pieces on this CD that have truly opened up new listening experiences for me.
To mention only a few of them in this limited arena is to cheat all of the composers in this package - but I feel I must.
On the beautiful side of things are "Elegy for an English Summer" (Knight), "Small Town" (Anderson), "Suite for Guitar & Strings" (Price) and "Surrounded by Beauty" (Arkenstone). These pieces are simply beautiful, heartbreaking and they touched my heart.
I simply adored the "Symphony" by Gregory Zduniak - the first part of which carries me away to foreign place each time I listen to it. Jeff Mangel's "The Trial" is exactly what every Kafka fan can envision his anti-hero sounds like and the chaotic "They Once Were ... A Concert Overture" (Ingoldsby) really challenged my ears and mind.
I don't know much about this type of music, except that I have never been exposed to it before so some of my comments might seems innapropriate or naive. Sorry about that!
For the first time in a long time I am excited about listening to something I had never heard before and that makes this CD more valuable than the sum of it's parts.
Before I end this rambling 'review', I feel that I must mention the orchestra and the incredible playing that is obvious (even to a rube like me) on these discs. I've hear of the conductor Winston before and am glad I have had the chance to hear him do what he obviously does best.
This CD is addicting!

Masterworks - Eleven
This is truly a remarkable recording! The "Masterworks of the New Era" series has long been a favorite to listen to and is a remarkable legacy of recorded new music works.
If you like non-standard, different music from some of the very best composers out there who aren't the one or two we are all used to listening to - then you will love this recording and the entire series.
I have many new favorites from this release - these are pieces that I find myself listening to over and over again.
Rain Worthington's stirring and moody "Yet Still Night" and Jonathan Middleton's "Redwoods Symphony" are must listen-to's on disc one. I liked Robert Hagenbuch's "Essay" on disc two - a homage to the late Samuel Barber and Andrew March's "Nympheas" - which is a very challenging piece and quite a listen.
The "Piano Concerto" by Paul Lombardi is a truly virtuoso work that owes much to Prokofiev and Margaret Meachem's "Double Helix" is a fantastic work for flute and orchestra that is another work that defies reason as to why it is not played more often - it is a wonderful work in the genre that completely captivated me.
The thrid disc ends with two work: Jeff Mangel's "The Trial" and Gregory Zduniak's "Symphony #1".
"The Trial" is wonderfully evocative and somber - very Eastern European in tone and wonderfully realized. Zduniak's "Symphony" includes what appears to be the first two movements and makes me hunger for the next movement or two. It is delicate and stern at the same time and shows great skill by the composer as he weaves a musical narrative. The second movement - for strings only - is on par with the Barber "Adagio" and truly stuck with me. This is emotive music at its best.
I have been so impressed with this recording that I have been talking it up to all my friends at work.
For people who do not always have the background and access to 'art' music like this - the "Masterworks" series is a terrific find.
The recording is crisp, clean and sonically brilliant.
This is a must-have for me!
