World premiere recording of one of 20th century America’s most important composers.

The four compositions on this disc effectively portray both sides of William Schuman’s musical personality — from the spirited energy of American Festival Overture and the uninhibited patriotic fervor of A Free Song to the much darker character of Prelude and the profoundly moving On Freedom’s Ground. One of the 20th century America’s most important composers and arts administrators, William Schuman (1910-1992) went from being a Tin Pan Alley song plugger to professor at Sarah Lawrence to president of Juilliard and finally, to president of Lincoln Center. With the exception of the oft-recorded American Festival Overture, these are world premiere recordings and represent the many sides of this extraordinarily creative musical mind. Joseph Polisi, the current president of Juilliard and author of American Muse: The Life and Times of William Schuman has provided the notes.
 

"... Ian Hobson’s Sinfonia da Camera is a fine chamber orchestra. The solists - soprano Ingrid Kammin  in the Prelude, baritone Ricardo Harrera in Free Song and Freedom’s Ground- sound excellent."

Kilpatrick - American Record Guide - January-February 2012


"...there are two world premiere recordings on this new CD. Prelude and On Freedom’s Ground, all of which capture the many facets fot his creative Composer [Schuman]... Works like Prelude for Full Chorus of Mixed Voices with Soprano and on Freem’s Ground ... demonstrate that Wiliam Schuman was just as adept writing for the human voice as he was writing for instrumental forces..."
