Notes & Reviews:

BMOP/sound's latest release, Virgil Thomson: Three Pictures, pays homage to one of the finest American composers of the 20th Century. The orchestral works on this disc include the frequently paired A Solemn Music and A Joyful Fugue, as well as the "photographic" Three Pictures for Orchestra. In Collected Poems, Thomas Meglioranza (baritone) and Kristen Watson (soprano) offer a witty rendition of Kenneth Koch's poetry, and Mr. Meglioranza is again featured in breathtaking performances in Feast of Love and Five Songs from William Blake. Without a doubt, BMOP/sound's recording has captured the originality and sophistication of Virgil Thomson's music.
