Albany Records to release Schwarz's "The Living American" CD in 2023
This CD looks at a wide variety of living American composers representing a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. It brings diversity not only with the composers, but by the music they are composing. This CD explores Arab, Indian, funk and jazz influences, all pushing the boundaries of what we consider classical music. Featured works include compositions by Jennifer Higdon, Jessie Montgomery, and Reena Esmail, plus world- premiere recordings by Avner Dorman, Steven Sametz, Joseph Goodrich, and Denis DiBlasio.
