New music in the style of Copland and Barber.

Chris Theofanidis was born on December 18, 1967 in Dallas Texas. He studied with Sam Adler, Joseph Schwantner, and Jacob Druckman. His father, Iraklis, was a classically trained pianist and composer from Greece. These are the basic facts. At Albany Records we feel we have an obligation to search out new, young composers and bring their music to you. This recording contains a wide variety of music written in an accessible, tonal idiom.

Review:
"Chris Theofanidis's choral music would work very well as church anthems. The text settings are clear and appropriate, and the instrumental accompaniments are forceful but not overwhelming. There is nothing in the musical language (very traditional) that would be out of place in church. The vocal and instrumental music on the disc is of varying style and interest....The standout piece on the disc is Sikelanos for Pierrot instrumentation plus two conga drum players."
