Notes & Reviews:

American composer Libby Larsen’s compositional catalog is wide-ranging, from large-scale orchestral and choral pieces to a veritable trove of songs for voice and various instrumental combinations: string quintet, orchestra, percussion and tape, and piano. In addition, she is known for her frequent choice of female subjects, ranging from women pioneers of the American West to characters created by Virginia Woolf. It is this aspect of her compositional preference that provides the basis for the program on this recording.
