GRAMMY® winning composer Michael Daugherty interprets three icons of the 'Greatest Generation,' an era of adversity and achievement in American history spanning the Great Depression of the 1930's through the Second World War. Mount Rushmore is a dramatic oratorio inspired by the massive sculpture of four American presidents carved into a South Dakota mountainside. Radio City is a symphonic fantasy on the legendary Arturo Toscanini, who conducted the NBC Symphony Orchestra in live broadcasts heard throughout the country. The Gospel According to Sister Anne is an organ concerto inspired by the rise, fall and redemption of religious celebrity Aimee Semple McPherson. We feature the new release alongside other celebrated Michael Daugherty releases on Naxos.
