Dialogues, Volume 1 - Morten Lauridsen
(Musical Conversations Between Composers and Conductors)
Morten Lauridsen, Paul Salamunovich and James Jordan
- GIA Publications
How valuable would it be to be able to listen in on a conversation among three of the most influential figures in choral music of the past thirty years - composer Morten Lauridsen and conductors Paul Salamunovich and James Jordan? Recorded in 2008 over a two-day period at the Hollywood Hills home of the composer, these colleagues and friends participated in a discussion to help conductors and choirs understand the music of Morten Lauridsen. Lauridsen and Salamunovich share details of their friendship and collaboration of almost thirty years. All three share important information about the performance, rehearsal, conducting, and interpretation of Lauridsen's works, which have become central to the canon of choral literature.
