Notes & Reviews:

The Seasons, a cantata in five sections - Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer, Finale - is organized with four song cycles made up of five songs that can be performed separately and a Finale uniting all the voices and instruments. The major work on this program, lasting in excess of 75 minutes, The Seasons sets the profoundly intimate and vividly imagistic poetry of Elizabeth Kirschner. Composer Larry Bell's music has been widely performed in the United States and abroad by the Atlanta Symphony, Seattle Symphony, RAI Orchestra of Rome, Juilliard Philharmonia, Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Boston Civic Symphony, the Boston Chamber Music Society, Speculum Musicae, and the St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble, among others. His music appears on North/South, Vienna Modern Masters and Albany Records. He is the recipient of the Rome Prize and the Charles Ives Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
