This world premiere recording of four recent orchestral works by acclaimed composer Dan Locklair opens with the powerful Symphony No. 2 ‘America,’ the orchestral fireworks of which celebrate three significant American holidays. This work was summed up by Classical Voice North Carolina as ‘soon-to-be-a-hit’ for its highly rhythmical and lyrical character, typical features of Locklair’s music. ‘Hail the Coming Day’ is a festive celebration of the consolidation of the towns of Winston and Salem in 1913, while the antiphonal dialogues of Phoenix celebrate new life. The Concerto for Organ and Orchestra movingly unites ancient and modern musical techniques to create a work of dazzling and exquisite beauty.
