New CD - Errollyn Wallen

Just out is the new cd Photography with four orchestral pieces by Errollyn Wallen (Belize, 1958). Her music is both immediately familiar and entirely original. She combines popular styles, aspects of minimalism, baroque counterpoint, modernist rhythms, and lush romantic textures and draws on influences around her. Many of the works on this album have personal associations and are written for long-standing musical collaborators and friends who appear on this recording.
