Add To Cart

Quite a contrast with the grandiose scale of his famed operas, most notably The Grapes of Wrath, this is an intimate and very personal offering from one of the most beloved American composers of opera, musical theater and song.
An exquisite taste in poetry, complex harmonies, sophisticated yet very appealing vocal lines, everything that made Gordon’s songs such an enormoussuccess among singers of all generations and walks of life – from aspiring high school students to superstars such as Renee Fleming and Dawn Upshaw – is delivered with poise, simplicity and heartfelt warmth by the author himself.
