Notes & Reviews:

Daniel Carr trained in finance, switching to composition in 1997. This is the first volume in a series that will record all of his music.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The program alternates piano and vocal music by American composer Daniel Carr. It begins with three settings of Langston Hughes poetry, sung with flair. Don't get me wrong, Petrus has a terrific voice. Fairly virtuosic demands on the singer (executed with exceptional skill by Petrus). Mayumi Tayake plays the Three Preludes, a group of "improvisations captured on paper". This is exciting, interesting music and Tayake plays with terrific phrasing and clarity. 'Aki', a delicate vocalize for voice and piano, incorporates Chopin's Funeral March (from the second piano sonata). The piece is haunting; Carr's notes explain that he "wrote the darker middle section after learning of a senseless school shooting". The performances of both are pretty great.
