Fire and Blood

Neeme Järvi ? Detroit S.O. This recording celebrates three exciting works commissioned and premiered by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra during Michael Daugherty?s four years as Composerin-Residence. Inspired by Diego Rivera?s monumental fresco and Frida Kahlo?s paintings created in Detroit, Michigan, Fire and Blood ?rivets the ear with a bold palette of colors and the skillful elaboration of vibrant themes? (Detroit News). MotorCity Triptych, ?striking both in its brilliance and in its technical rigor,? is a road trip through the sounds of Detroit: the 1960s pulse of Motown, the motor rhythms of Michigan Avenue, and the legend of civil rights icon Rosa Parks. Raise the Roof, composed for the opening of Detroit?s Max M. Fisher Music Center, is a grand acoustic construction featuring the timpani in a tour de force of urban polyrhythms.

Mass

Jubilant Sykes ? Baltimore S.O. ? Marin Alsop When Leonard Bernstein was asked by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to compose the inaugural work for the opening of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., he wrote: ?The Mass is also an extremely dramatic event in itself?it even suggests a theater work.? Premiered on September 8, 1971, with additional words by Stephen Schwartz of Godspell fame, Mass is a remarkable, visionary work with a kaleidoscope of musical styles that touches on themes of political protest, existential crisis and religious faith lost and found. Featuring Marin Alsop conducting the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and soloist Jubilant Sykes.
