Reviews

  • A Fantastic Piece of Contemporary American Classical

    5
    By Steven.Limpert
    In "Ellis Island - The Dream of America," Peter Boyer has composed a stunningly beautiful and emotionally evocative piece in the tradition of Aaron Copland's "Lincoln Portrait." Combing neo-romantic music with the spoken word, "Ellis Island - The Dream of America" tells the autobiographical tales of seven immigrants of the early 20th century. With both powerful solo orchestral passages and effective orchestral accompaniment colorings, this piece should prove an enjoyable listen for the experienced American classical music enthusiast and the inexperienced, alike.
