Notes & Reviews:

"bloody conflictbloody fieldsbloody war" These words of Abraham Lincoln, sung by the international superstar Thomas Hampson, open the new composition "Letters From Lincoln" commissioned by the Spokane Symphony in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth, and premiered February 28, 2009. Composed by Michael Daugherty, one of the most performed and recorded composers on the American music scene today, this new work is rich with haunting melodies setting the words of our 16th President, to evocative and memorable music.
