This four disc collection contains works by thirty-seven composers who were all in residence at the American Academy in Rome. The earliest work dates from 1920, the most recent from 2003. Composers include the well known: Samuel Barber, Elliott Carter, and Roger Sessions; the largely forgotten: Charles Naginski, Alexander Lang Steinert, Walter Helfer; and many of today’s most active voices: Robert Beaser, David Rakowski, Aaron Jay Kernis, Paul Moravec, Stephen Hartke, and David Lang. Curated by Donald Berman, the disc features performances by many of today’s leading performers of contemporary music, including Richard Stoltzman, Yehudi Wyner, Susan Narucki, Tony Arnold, Fred Sherry, Daniel Druckman, Curtis Macomber, Trio Solisti, Ida Kavafian, Scott Yoo, Steven Tenenbom, Peter Wiley, Anne-Marie McDermott, Hila Plitman, Chris Pedro Trakas, and Jeffrey Milarsky.
