In the spirit of Valentines day, a day typically associated with gestures from the heart and the exchanging of roses, here is a rose from us to you:
THE PALEST ROSE (Ravello / Released 2012)
In this collection of works for solo piano, chamber ensemble, chorus, and orchestra, Oregon-based composer Mark Vigil strives to appeal to the listener’s heart, urging them to hear the music based on its beauty alone. This release serves as a retrospective of Vigil’s varied works for a variety of configurations, and serves as an
astute sampling of his compositional output as a whole.
Have a great holiday, and happy listening!
