Notes & Reviews:

The critically acclaimed world premiere recording of William Bolcom's epic 'Songs of Innocence and of Experience' is now available on DVD-Audio! Composed over 25 years ago, this work is a crowning achievement of American composition, and Leonard Slatkin and the musicians of the University of Michigan bring these 'musical illuminations' of William Blake's words to life. "The most important classical release of the year." - Chicago Tribune
