Notes & Reviews:

The goal of the America! series from harmonia mundi is to explore the profound effect that the "New World" has had on the world of classical music. Featuring some of the finest performers on the label, each of the three volumes focuses on a theme. Volume 1, subtitled A Land of Refuge, looks at the concept of America as a place of escape from repression and tyranny. The recording's program ranges from songs of the American Revolution to works by refugees from Nazism and Communism.
