Performer Conductors Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Over his 75 years of composition, Roger Sessions remained an umcompromising contemporary craftsman. These 1950s works, the stunning Louisville-commissioned and widely praised 'Idyll of Theocritus', and the undheralded, demanding 'Divertimento for Orchestra', are the restless, lean, and elegant music of one of our greatest composers.
