Notes & Reviews:

LUMINESCENCE brings to light six works for small and large orchestra, showcasing the inspired directions and composers of contemporary orchestral music. Marvin Schluger's Manhattan Suite for full orchestra is being released 14 years after its recording. New York, 2013 by Raymond Bokhour is another piece alluding to the Big Apple, as experienced by the composer that year. Serenade for Strings by Robert Burrell captures the musicality of Australian avian species while Daniel Burwasser's piece Catching Fireflies reflects the innocence and playfulness of childhood pastimes. David Kirtley contemplates the life and mystical journey of the Oglala Sioux holy man, Nicholas Black Elk, in Leaves falling from the Holy Tree. In the tone poem, Within a Dance, Rain Worthington evokes the intimacy of a first invitation to dance, and the continuing dance of love.
