As a history teacher, I am constantly on the lookout for music that can help to bring the past alive. This CD does a wonderful job for both the American Revolution and the Civil War. While the country twang of some of these pieces may jar young sensibilities, students quickly warm to the authentic verve of the performances. The Revolutionary period includes such chestnuts as the "Riddle Song" (and actually omits "Yankee Doodle"), but also some jokes of the period, including a hysterical folk version of a taming of a shrew. The Civil War period is split between northern and southern songs. There are the standards "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" and "Dixie," but also more obscure songs like "Lincoln and Liberty" and "Goober Peas." All in all, a great tool, especially for the price.

Composing over 150 works for piano and voice over a period of 44 years, the songs of Francis Poulenc remain consistently popular to concert audiences the world over. Varying in their individual style and character in a way that defies generalization, Poulenc set music to a wide range of different French poetry – both ancient and modern, and from the serious to the surreal. The final disc in Signum’s series of The Complete Songs of Francis Poulenc features a cast of the finest singers of our generation, accompanied by Malcolm Martineau as well as additional instrumental soloists for Poulenc’s larger-ensemble settings of his songs.

When Salil Tripathi began writing a travel column for a well known newspaper, he consciously decided to veer off the beaten track and not showcase the food and drink or the fabulous hotels and world class restaurants of a country. Instead, it was his insights into a place that defined a country and its people when viewed from the prism of history, culture and literature.

While covering Bob Dylan songs certainly isn't a novel idea, it's potentially a very interesting idea to have contemporary blues musicians perform Dylan compositions indebted to that form, since it's sometimes easy to overlook the deeply traditional roots of his music in light of the vast new territories he opened up…
Thomas Hampson, Nashville Symphony Orchestra & Giancarlo Guerrero - Danielpour: Songs of Solitude & War Songs (2016)

Thomas Hampson, Nashville Symphony Orchestra & Giancarlo Guerrero - Danielpour: Songs of Solitude & War Songs
Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 60:35 min | 245 MB
Label: Naxos | Tracks: 12 | Rls.date: 2016

Acclaimed as one of America's leading contemporary composers, Richard Danielpour wrote Songs of Solitude as a response to the events of 9/11. Drawing on the poems of W.B. Yeats, the work enshrines a sense of economy and sparseness, formed of a set of six powerful orchestral songs. The motivating force for War Songs was a series of photographs of the young men and women killed in the Iraq War. The song cycle, with its texts by Walt Whitman, was written for the Nashville Symphony to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War. Toward the Splendid City is a portrait of New York City driven by Danielpour's love-hate relationship with his hometown.
