Strongly inclined towards neo-romanticism, Richard Danielpour’s music is a rich unity of energy, intensity, and serenity. First Light reveals these elements perfectly with its rhythmically charged writing contrasting with hypnotic chant melodies. The Awakened Heart is a kaleidoscopic three-movement work that ranges from darkness and passion through a stately chorale to an exuberant and breathless conclusion. Symphony No. 3 charts a triumphant ascent from “the dream of death and our own fearful existence” to a belief “in a world of hope and love.” “Danielpour is an outstanding composer for any time – one who knows how to communicate deep, important emotions through simple, direct means.” (The New York Daily News)

“Danielpour deserves to be better known; for, despite the obvious stylistic debts to Stravinsky, his individual sense of purpose and command of his technique are highly impressive. We should be grateful to Naxos for rescuing these recordings from oblivion”
