Notes & Reviews:

Championed by distinguished conductors such as Marin Alsop and Mariss Jansons, since his mid-20s, Michael Hersch's music has been performed by leading orchestras and concert artists. Winner of the prestigious Berlin Prize and the Rome Prize for composition, he has been described as a "new hope of American musical culture" by the Berliner Morgenpost, and a composer of "phenomenal musical ability" by the Financial Times. Hersch's music, which ranges across vast and often anguished soundscapes, has a searing yet breath-taking effect. If 'Symphony No. 1' shows a young composer influenced by Mahler and Berg, 'Symphony No. 2' represents a more innovative and complex style. 'Fracta' and 'Arrache' are two harrowing and intense shorter pieces illustrative of Hersch's most recent work.
