Chosen in 1988 as Composer of the Year by Musical America and now recognized as one of the finest song composers in America, Ned Rorem has also written a significant body of music for orchestra, including three Symphonies (Naxos 8.559149), a Violin Concerto and a Flute Concerto (Naxos 8.559278).

Review By Robert Reilly,InsideCatholic.com,August 2008

If Ravel or Poulenc had been American, they might have written Ned Rorem’s scintillating Piano Concerto No. 2, offered by Naxos (8.559315) with conducting magician José Serebrier, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and pianist Simon Mulligan. Whimsy, charm, wit, and melody, as conveyed to and by an American in Paris. This is simply delightful. What a disgrace this concerto was set aside for half a century. Welcome back, along with the wonderful, more recent Cello Concerto (2002) accompanying it.
