A New Recording Of John Corigliano’s Revised Dylan Thomas Trilogy

December 21, 2007

Immediately following three performances of Dylan Thomas Trilogy by the prominent American composer John Corigliano, the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Leonard Slatkin, then undertook a recording the work for future release on Naxos.

Mr. Corigliano has described the Trilogy, a composition set to the poetry of Dylan Thomas, as “a memory play in the form of an oratorio”, and in its current form boasts substantial revisions to a work that received its original première more than thirty years ago. The arc and flow of the work is one Mr. Corigliano has described as embodying “the three ages of man”.

The work is scored for large chorus and orchestra, baritone and tenor soloists, and boy soprano.

The recording sessions, which took place from 2 to 5 December 2007, featured baritone Sir Thomas Allen, tenor John Tessier, boy soprano Ty Jackson, and the Nashville Symphony Chorus directed by George Mabry. The recording was produced and engineered in surround sound by Steve Epstein and Richard King respectively.
