We are pleased to announce that PARMA composer Arthur Gottschalk and his recent Navona Records release REQUIEM: FOR THE LIVING received a Gold Medal from Global Music Award with the distinction of “Best of Show.”
Released in September 2015, REQUIEM: FOR THE LIVING is an 8-movement, 45 minute work for full orchestra, chorus, and four soloists, including tenor Alberto Mizrahi and GRAMMY-nominated soprano Lauren Snouffer. Within the momentous masterwork, Gottschalk resigns the fear of uncertainty by celebrating the rich narrative of Western art and culture. Gottschalk is a Professor of Music Composition and Theory at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music. You can find out more about Gottschalk on his website.
