Notes & Reviews:

Although still strongly influenced by the traditions of western Europe, 20th Century American music was also a testing ground for new techniques. From the refined neo-classicism of Bernstein's Serenade to Herrmann's expressionistic score to Psycho, from the vitality of Gershwin's Preludes to the philosophical musical innovations of Ives to the poetic lyricism of Barber's Adagio, this unique recording presents five facets of the musical history of the New World. American violinist Tai Murray is joined by the Orchestre Poitou-Charentes led by Jean-François Heisser, who is also the soloist in the Gershwin.
