HAGEN, D.A.: 21st-Century Song Cycles - After Words / Songs of Experience / Phantoms of Myself / 4 Irish Folk Songs / 4 Dickinson Songs (Lyric Fest)

Although he is a prolific composer of operas, symphonies and concertos, songs lie at the core of Daron Hagen’s output. With over 350 published art songs, he has embraced and extended the great lineage of American song exemplified by Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein and Ned Rorem, and is now considered one of the foremost 21st-century composers for the voice. The meticulously crafted and wholly idiomatic examples included here have been recorded under the composer’s supervision with his chosen performers, members of Lyric Fest, Philadelphia’s renowned song series.
