About this Recording

COOMAN: Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3 / Violin Sonata

The young American composer Carson P. Cooman is one of the most active of his generation, having written over six hundred works in many forms. This disc presents a broad overview of his music, from orchestral to chamber and solo works. It includes the lyrical Symphony No. 2, inspired by a poem of Kathleen Wakefield about love and the desire for rain, and his Symphony No. 3, which takes as its source material the plainchant Ave maris stella. Partita explores the baroque flute’s unique sonic properties, and the Piano Concerto is filled with allusions to classical symphonic form and style, within a contemporary context. Dedicated to the composer Peter Sculthorpe, Songlines, Sun Dreaming is rich in native Australian imagery.
