Two lovely ballet scores from the distinguished American composer, Jon Magnussen

The music on this disc came to be out of a unique collaboration between three artists spanning three generations: José Limon, Jon Magnussen and Carla Maxwell, the artistic director for the Limón Dance Company. After Limón's death, the ballet Winged was revived. There was a need for a new score and Magnussen was chosen from a pool of graduate students at Juilliard to write the music. Because that collaboration proved so successful, Carla Maxwell asked Magnussen to write a new score for Psalm when she revived the dance.

"Jon Magnussen writes attractive, well-made music. ...there is much to enjoy here, as a result of Magnussen's vigorous imagination and jazzy sense of rhythm." (Fanfare)
