  • About This Album

    This album spans 33 years of Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Leon Kirchner’s work, performed by members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The Boston Globe praised these pieces for their ”fecundity of invention and activity, originality, luxuriance and coherence of harmony, [and] masterly exploitation of how instruments sound and how instruments can sound together.”
