Kenneth Fuchs has written for orchestra, band, chorus, jazz ensemble, and various chamber groups. His first recording for Naxos (8.559224) also featured the London Symphony Orchestra under JoAnn Falletta, as well as the orchestra’s principal horn player, Timothy Jones. This meeting inspired Fuchs to write the concerto Canticle to the Sun for Jones and United Artists as a tribute to the orchestra. Two of the works on this recording were inspired by paintings: Autumn Rhythm by Jackson Pollock’s famous picture of the same name, and Fire, Ice, and Summer Bronze by Helen Frankenthaler, whose art adorns the cover of this disc.


   




Review By Robert R. Reilly,InsideCatholic.com,March 2008

As promised, I will end this trilogy on American classical music (see the previous January and February installments) by covering some of the recent releases of works by composers of whom you have probably never heard. I believe their music demonstrates what I have contended in my last two missives: that American music has recovered from a near-death experience and is now fully itself again. All this music needs to succeed is an audience; it will do the rest. It is time for the audience to return. These new CDs are the reason why.
