A recording that highlights the diversity of modern American music.

In this third release with the Dvorak Orchestra (the previous discs are TROY687 and TROY704), Julius Williams again displays his enthusiastic and original approach to American orchestral works. Composer/conductor Williams has been Music Director of the Washington Symphony Orchestra and has conducted orchestras and ensembles all over the United States. He has held faculty positions at Wesleyan University, the University of Hartford and the University of Vermont. He has received multiple ASCAP awards in composition over the years. As a native New Yorker, his memorial piece to the September 11, 2001 tragedy is obviously heartfelt, with a suggestion of optimism. McQuillan, a native of Amsterdam, New York, reveals strong lyrical gifts in Seasons of Gold. Brooklyn-born Qualliotine paints an expressive picture of the changing seasons around his Massachusetts home in Mystic Valley Autumn, and Berklee School of Music teacher Hojnacki reveals a strong narrative drive in his neo-Romantic Symphony No. 1. This disc is a perfect demonstration of the diversity that exists in modern American music.
