Notes & Reviews:

Awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2012, Kevin Puts now stands in the forefront of contemporary American composers. His powerfully conceived Symphony No. 2 is a musical illustration of the events of 9/11 and traces a movement from unsuspecting bliss and rhapsody through violent upheaval to a reflective epilogue that contains both uncertainty and hope. Possibly inspired by thoughts of the Mississippi, River's Rush employs novel harmonies, while elegant transparency distinguishes the refined beauty of the Flute Concerto.

Classical Ear, October 2016
In its unabashed emotion, high drama and cinematic sweep, the music of Kevin Puts (b.1972) is recognisably American... Marin Alsop and the Peabody Symphony Orchestra are entirely persuasive advocates of music that has much to recommend it.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2016
Marin Alsop an impressively polished performance from Peabody's student orchestra.
