Notes & Reviews:

Decca is proud to announce its newly formed relationships with American composer Nico Muhly as well as the Los Angeles Master Chorale. For this all-new recording, the Grammy-nominated LAMC under Music Director Grant Gershon performs the choral works of Nico Muhly. New York based composer Nico Muhly, born in 1981 is "the planet's hottest composer" (The Daily Telegraph) working today. He has been commissioned by The Metropolitan Opera under Peter Gelb, who commented: "Muhly is a brilliant, original composing voice who writes music that is genuinely pleasing. Anthat is difficult." The LAMC is the resident chorus of the landmark Walt Disney Concert Hall and has earned the admiration of audiences and critics both in Los Angeles and across the country. This unique program demonstrates the Chorale's programmatic daring and technical finesse.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles (06/10/2010-06/11/2010).

REVIEWS:

Pitchfork (Website) - "A GOOD UNDERSTANDING is remarkably whole. Its mostly-religious songs draw upon traditional Anglican choral music, as well as Muhly's recollections of being a boy chorister."
