Songs of John Musto
BRIDGE 9286


$ 14.99

The brilliant American composer John Musto has in recent years emerged as one of America's leading composers of opera and art song. This disc is a remarkable document of Musto's work as a song composer-the composer accompanies all of the songs, including many with his wife, the estimable soprano Amy Burton. Of particular interest is the couple's performance of Quiet Songs, a work they have performed together for many years. Musto is a virtuoso pianist (he plays both of his own Piano Concertos regularly) and the ideal accompanist for these highly personal creations. Amy Burton is joined by Grammy-nominated baritone Patrick Mason on The Old Gray Couple, and Mason sings many of Musto's most frequently performed songs, including Flamenco and the cycle viva sweet love.
