Overview

Acclaimed as "one of the best opera composers of the moment," American composer-librettist Mark Adamo has also ventured into symphonic composition and other fields in each of which his theatrical sensitivity, political commitment and musical mastery are evident. The vivacity of his Overture to Lysistrata accentuates the play's anti-war theme, while Alcott Music rethinks the music from his hit opera Little Women. Regina Coeli pays tribute to the Queen of Heaven and Late Victorians is dedicated both to the memory of those who have died and to those who have survived AIDS. From the Label

Editorial Reviews

Gramophone - Lawrence A. Johnson
Mark Adamo is one of our most gifted and successful young composers and, in its varied way, this programme provides a worthy sampler of vocal and orchestral music from a composer best known for his operas. Performances are excellent, and Late Victorians and the revised Alcott Music may well earn a place in the repertory.
