2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ian Lincoln on October 8, 2010
Format: Audio CD
Ricky Ian Gordon (b.1956) is a leading member of the generation of American composers of song (another notable whose work I know a bit is Adam Guettel), and in particular for musical theater, who are trying to establish a new model for the medium in the post-Sondheim era. Their great strength is their stylistic fluidity; they're comfortable in both a more classical art song mode, and in the more familiar tropes of the stage. Their great curse is exactly the same quality, in that audiences have not flocked to them, deeming them not as accessible as their predecessors. And that in my view is a great shame, as there's enormous substance and entertainment here. Not too surprisingly, they--and Gordon in particular--have gravitated toward opera as their primary showcase, even though they bring to it a particularly American, naturalistic tone that can't help but refresh it and keep it engaging for younger audiences looking for more than mere rehashes of Verdi, Puccini, and Wagner.
I only know Gordon's work formerly from a wonderful Nonesuch release, Bright-Eyed Joy; alas, I've not heard his opera on The Grapes of Wrath, which has received glowing press. These two releases showcase the composer in very different ways, which emphasize the breadth and diversity of his talents.
A Horse With Wings (the title of one song on the program) is a song recital by the composer alone, singing at the piano. Gordon demonstrates enviable musicianship. He has a pleasing, light baritone voice, and a great ear for intonation. His delivery is crisp, impassioned, and always clearly articulated.
