Notes & Reviews:

Composer-conductor Dan Welcher, whose works range in scale from piano solo to opera, is one of the most-performed American composers of his generation. In 1990, he was named Composer in Residence with the Honolulu Symphony, for whom he wrote the tone poem Haleakala: How Maui Snared the Sun. Using ancient Hawaiian chant-tunes, authentic percussion instruments and Polynesian scales, the work is designed to appeal on many levels. Some of the other works on this album display the influence of Jazz and, in one case, even rock-n-roll!
