Kevin Puts: Symphony No. 4, From Mission San Juan: I. Prelude: Mission San Juan Bautista, ca.1800
Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts (born 1972) is known for his distinctive and richly colored musical voice. Making their label début, Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra perform Kevin Puts’ Symphony No.4 (“From Mission San Juan”), inspired by Native American melodies. Opening this program of world première recordings, Craig Hella Johnson leads Conspirare in two choral settings of texts by women poets: “To Touch the Sky” and “If I Were a Swan”.
