Notes & Reviews:

The distinguished American composer Thomas Pasatieri is well known for his operas, having composed 22, as well as for his hundreds of songs and other vocal works. In fact, his first symphony, written at age 63 came about because of his association with the University of Kentucky and their production of his opera, The Hotel Casablanca. His Symphony No. 2 was written for conductor John Nardolillo and the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra as well, while Symphony No. 3 was commissioned and premiered by the Northwest Sinfonietta. These are world premiere recordings of these works.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Thomas Pasatieri (born 1945) is well known for his widely-performed and often-recorded operas; he's written 22 of them. The idiom is tonal and romantic, with very occasional modern sounding touches - not far from Barber or early Corigliano. The music ambles along pleasantly, sometimes roiled by dramatic outbursts, sometimes slowed by sentimental serenades. It might well be background music for a film - or an operatic interlude.
