Performer Conductors Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The music on this disc came to be out of a unique collaboration between three artists spanning three generations: Jose Limon, Jon Magnussen and Carla Maxwell, the artistic director for the Limon Dance Company. After Limon's death, the ballet Winged was revived. There was a need for a new score and Magnussen was chosen from a pool of graduate students at Juilliard to write the music. Because that collaboration proved so successful, Carla Maxwell asked Magnussen to write a new score for Psalm when she revived the dance.
