Miriam Gideon: Retrospective

Composer(s): Miriam Gideon
Album Title: Miriam Gideon: Retrospective 
Cat. No.: 80393
Genre: Classical
Description: Speculum Musicae; The New York Camerata

The music of Miriam Gideon can best be described as “atonal expressionism.” There is drama and lyricism, highly controlled yet nevertheless personal, economical yet full of fantasy. Although she was well known as an instrumental composer, Gideon’s fondness for the voice and her use of lyric and dramatic poetry play a major role in her output, which includes an opera, several choral works, and many songs and song cycles with piano and various instrumental ensembles. The fifteen selections on this disc afford an excellent chance to become acquainted with her subtle art, featuring, as it does, examples of both her vocal and instrumental works, which span virtually her entire career.
