Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

William Bolcom, named '2007 Composer of the Year' by Musical America, has written in many genres. His Gospel Preludes, based on hymns, are amongst his most fascinating and compulsive works. Bold, brilliant, sometimes bizarre, but always hugely enjoyable, the Preludes vary widely, sometimes adorned by jazzy chords and rich swing, sometimes exuding tour de force brilliance or - when the music is quiet and reflective - possessed of a mesmeric reassurance. The Grammy Award-winning Naxos recording of Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and Experience is available on 8.559216-18.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
I believe this is the first time all the Gospel Preludes have been released on one disc. The Dallas chapter of the American Guild of Organists commissioned the first book of three preludes and liked them so much that they asked for three more books of three.
