FUCHS, K.: Falling Man / Movie House / Songs of Innocence and Experience (R. Williams, London Symphony, Falletta)

Kenneth Fuchs, one of America’s leading composers, deepens his bond with conductor JoAnn Falletta and the London Symphony Orchestra with this superb recording of vocal music featuring baritone Roderick Williams. The new works include Falling Man, a dramatic scena based on the powerful post-9/11 novel by Don DeLillo; Movie House, a cycle featuring settings of seven poems by John Updike; and Songs of Innocence and of Experience, four settings from William Blake’s iconic two-part illustrated collection of poems. Fuchs’s music continues to find its visual counterpart in the work of Abstract Expressionist artist Helen Frankenthaler, whose art adorns the cover of this disc.
