Notes & Reviews:

Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Melinda Wagner has composed a highly regarded catalog of chamber and orchestral music. Critic Tim Page writes: "Melinda Wagner's work suggests what the painter Henri Rousseau might have created had he written music - the bright, deep colors; the sense of fantasy that is both explicit and somewhat mysterious. It is music that is just as smart as it is sensual, as brainy as it is beautiful. Wagner is one of my favorite composers, and my admiration grows with every new work." This CD presents premiere recordings of three important works in Wagner's output, performed by leading advocates of the music of our time. Also available from Bridge is Melinda Wagner's Pulitzer Prize-winning Concerto for Flute, Strings and Percussion (1998).
