Pulitzer Prize winner Joseph Schwantner is one of the most prominent composers in America today, renowned for his dramatic style and bewitchingly colourful orchestration. Morning’s Embrace depicts the intense brilliance of sunrise at his home in rural New Hampshire, and the ‘Ford Made in America’ commission Chasing Light… continues to explore the natural world in a work of eloquent expressiveness. A highly popular concert piece, the ‘fresh, engaging’ (Metro) and technically demanding Percussion Concerto is performed here by the acclaimed soloist for whom the work was written, Christopher Lamb.
