A marvelous collection of this eminent American composer's music.

Considered "one of the heroes of American music," John Duffy has composed more than 300 works for symphony orchestra, opera, theatre, television and film. His best-known work in television is his score for the PBS series Heritage: Civilization and the Jews. He also composed music for the New York City productions of Macbird, The Ginger Man and the Yeats musical Horseman Pass By. Duffy grew up in the Bronx, one of fourteen children of Irish immigrant parents. He studied composition with, among others, Aaron Copland, Henry Cowell and Luigi Dallapiccola. As founder and president of Meet the Composer, an organization dedicated to the creation, performance and recording of music by American composers, Duffy initiated countless landmark programs to advance American music and to aid American composers. As he writes of this CD, "As the 2005 composer-in-residence (of the Virginia Arts Festival), I had the good fortune to work with JoAnn Falletta (and the soloists and ensembles on this recording). This CD covers 50 years of my composing life...A born and bred New Yorker, part time Virginian, and traveling Mainer, my music and this recording reflect my love of these seacoast lands, of our beautiful country and this vast earth, with its miraculous variety of peoples."
