Tobias Picker: Symphony no 2, String Quartet no 1

Album Summary

>Picker, Tobias [Composer] : Symphony no 2 for soprano & orchestra ("Aussohnung")
>Picker, Tobias [Composer] : Quartet for Strings no 1 ("New Memories")
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Picker's homage to Georgia O'Keefe. The work receives a memorable, evocative performance from the Mendelssohn String Quartet. The inspiration for Picker's second symphony stems from his family's deep love of Goethe and Wagner and the German literary and musical tradition. Soprano Leona Mitchell's stirring reading of the song is the centerpiece of the Houston Symphony Orchestra's powerful performance.
