American Composer James Aikman
In August 2011 on Naxos came out the CD of music by Wonderful American Composer James Aikman. Recorded with St.Petersburg Symphony Orchestra.
Award-winning composer James Aikman’s music is ‘accessible and inventive’ (Fanfare magazine), and these three works embrace a colorful tapestry of stylistic infl uences, including jazz and pop.The elegantly simple and subtle Ania’s Song is described by the composer as a ‘peaceful isle’ between the supple lines and intricate counterpoint of the Violin Concerto and the Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra with its translucent orchestration and echoes of Alban Berg. Leading American soloists join one of Russia’s finest orchestras for a recording with truly international appeal.
