Notes & Reviews:

The highlight of this disc is Menotti's "The Unicorn, the Gorgon, and the Manticore." Here is one of Menotti's most accomplished works. It calls for chorus, dancers and nine instrumentalists. The text focuses on a well-to-do, but eccentric man in a castle and presents his life in three stages, his youth, middle and old age.
