World premiere recordings of two works by David Del Tredici.

The Albany Symphony, conducted by David Alan Miller, performs two world premiere recordings of works by the distinguished and original composer, David Del Tredici. Pop-Pourri is the very first piece in Del Tredici's legendary "Alice" series and is scored for orchestra, soprano, rock band, and chorus. Adventures in Wonderland includes The Pool of Tears and The Mouse's Tale, which are connected with narration, sketching the events occurring in between. Hila Plitman, the soprano soloist is a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and actress. The Albany Symphony is legendary for its commitment to American music. Conductor David Alan Miller is one of the leading American conductors of his generation. He and the Albany Symphony are the recipients of two Grammy awards.

Review:
I was astonished to discover that these are first recordings for both works; indeed, as sig-nificant as they are, they are demanding to perform and have been neglected by orches-tras for years. The ever-reliable David Alan Miller is a continuous advocate for contempo-rary American composers and is the ideal con-ductor to resurrect these gems. He has helped make the Albany Symphony the leading Amer-ican orchestra for new music. Soprano Hila Plitmann leads with charismatic, zany, and theatrical performances, handling the consid-erable acrobatics and many character voices with ease. An important recording and an electric delight. (American Record Guide)
