Fire In Heaven And Earth: Music Of Theodore Wiprud

From the Liner Notes

“Theodore Wiprud has played many important roles in American musical life since the 1980s . . . [He] came of age as a composer as the rigorous precepts of both serialism and classic minimalism yielded to a flowering of musical plurality. His works characteristically employ a freely tonal approach to harmony, convey specific emotional climates, and often reflect aspects of spiritual experience.”
