Album Notes
All of the works selected relate to the classical elements of earth, water, wind, and fire. While the repertoire is unified by this theme, each work is based on its own unique story, poem, or image. The goal of this recording project is to support the development of art through new compositions and bring recognition to the composers that surround us today.
