Award-winning composer Adolphus Hailstork is a vibrant communicator whose music speaks directly and subtly. His Symphony No 1 was commissioned for festival performance and is imbued with the lyrical and vivid qualities of which he is a master. The Three Spirituals are richly affecting orchestral settings originally written for pipe organ. Fanfare on Amazing Grace is nobly conceived and An American Port of Call evokes the bustle inspired by Norfolk, Virginia. Whitman’s Journey is a hymn of hope for those setting out on ‘the seas of life.’

Review By Jerónimo Marín,Ritmo,December 2012

Primera vez que aparece por estas páginas el compositor y profesor universitario de composición Adolphus Hailstork, nacido en 1941 en Rochester, Nueva York, y que tiene una dilatada trayectoria como compositor en su haber, con incluso un par de óperas.

Su estilo es impecable en cuanto al uso de la orquesta y el manejo de la forma y la armonía, rasgos que

Review By Daniel Coombs,Audiophile Audition,November 2012

Adolphus Hailstork is truly one of this country’s most important and respected composers and if you have never heard of him or his music; this album is a very good place to start.

His music is tonal, exciting, sometimes brash; very “accessible” and sounds quite ‘American.’ This collection of works illustrates the point very well, indeed.
