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 3, subtitled From Modern to Pop Art, juxtaposes works by some of the most influential contemporary composers such as John Cage and George Crumb, with the more romantic flavors of works by Bernstein and Copland.
