9/11 : 20
Format: COMPACT DISC
In what ways can music commemorate a catastrophe? This is the question posed by Adam Swayne in his program for this album, conceived on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks and featuring works by three American composers dealing with the events and aftermath of that horrific day. Adam Swayne works with a vast range of musical media and styles that go beyond conventional labelling. He is just as at home giving a solo piano recital or conducting an orchestra as he is organizing musical installations in art galleries or composing for amateur ensembles. He takes an inclusive, informative and innovative approach to music-making and has gained a large audience for his work.
