William Mayer: A Death in the Family / Gilbert, MSM

Album Summary

>Mayer, William : A Death in the Family, opera
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...This is one of the best, most poetical opera librettos ever...The music is almost completely tonal, sounding very much like Samuel Barber or Carlisle Floyd, even Copland, with brief sections of electronic music for nightmarish passages...The Manhattan performance does fine justice by the work...Johnson is commanding and moving as Jay...The Manattan orchestra led by David Gilbert offers a strong underpinning..." -Parsons, ARG
