Dominick Argento is America's pre-eminent opera composer, and a creator of vocal, choral and orchestral music that places him in the top rank of living composers. This significant new release presents WORLD PREMIERE recordings of five important Argento works, all closely associated with the Minnesota Orchestra: VALENTINO DANCES, a suite from the opera "The Dream of Valentino"featuring accordionist William Schimmel of The Tango Project; REVERIE, REFLECTIONS ON A HYMN TUNE; LE TOMBEAU D'EDGAR POE, a suite from the opera "The Voyage of Edgar Allan Poe," featuring tenor Chad Shelton; VALSE TRISTE; and A RING OF TIME.

"Argento's music is unmistakably New World: big, bright, brilliant, lyrically muscular, gymnastically supple and immediately appealing... magnificently articulate performances full of dash and detail that ring out with thrilling idiomatic aplomb." - Michael Quinn, Classic CD
