Format: MP3 Music
From Mark Estren at Infodad:

"The big question for modern classical music is whether a work is worth a second hearing. Audiences have become sufficiently sophisticated and sufficiently interested in new sonorities and instrumental combinations to try out many pieces once - but not necessarily again. Steven R. Gerber's 10-movement suite, Spirituals, is a work that will repay multiple listenings, and to which audiences are likely to return after they first hear it."

"Written between 1999 and 2001, Spirituals is highly congenial for Gerber's musical temperament: sensitive, quiet and thoughtful. The first nine movements are inspired by spirituals; the 10th is an arrangement of a work by Ravel. The movements' pacing is generally deliberate, but the treatment of the themes is highly varied. The first and longest movement, which takes off from a tune by Harry Burleigh - the man who introduced Dvorák to spirituals - is reminiscent of early Ives in its full harmonies, warmth and expansiveness. Among the other highlights are the sixth movement, based on Go Down, Moses, whose fascinating orchestration makes it sound for a moment as if woodwinds have joined the strings; and the light and dancelike ninth, derived from Glory to That Newborn King. But every movement has its own charms, and hearing the original songs peek through - sometimes their melodies, sometimes their rhythms, sometimes their harmonies - makes Spirituals an involving experience, and one to which listeners will want to return. Vladimir Lande and the St. Petersburg State Academic Symphony play the work with warmth and understanding, which are just the qualities it needs."

"The Clarinet Concerto was written from 2000 to 2002 for Jon Manasse, whose performance here is both skilled and knowing.
