JOSEPH SUMMER
Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day
TROY881 - $16.99

Begun in 2003 with concerts in Massachusetts and the U.S. Virgin 
Islands, the Shakespeare Concerts has presented recitals of music 
inspired by the immortal Bard - from original English text settings by 
many British composers, to settings in translations by Schubert, Brahms, 
Berlioz, Gounod, Thomas and Verdi, to purely instrumental pieces by 
Britten, Beethoven, Prokofiev and Korngold. The mainstay of this series 
has been the music of Joseph Summer, with premieres of two dozen of his 
sixty-odd Oxford Songs for one or more voices and various ensembles, as 
well as non-vocal pieces such as the ballet Dance of the Mechanics for 
string quintet. This disc, Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day, 
presents works premiered during the third and fourth seasons. The 
previous release in this series is What a Piece of Work is Man (TROY750).
