Now Available – Advance single DREAMING AWAKE from Paul Barnes forthcoming album NEW GENERATIONS
Paul Barnes’s new double album NEW GENERATIONS will be available in November on Orange Mountain Music. In celebration of that release as well as Barnes’s recital on Oct.4 in Chicago, OMM proudly releases Barnes’s powerful reading of Philip Glass’s DREAMING AWAKE (2003). The piece was composed for and recorded by Glass in 2003 as a private fundraiser forJewel Heart, and that recording was never to be commercially available or recorded again by Glass.
In 2015-16, Paul Barnes celebrates two decades of collaboration with Philip Glass. Glass composed his Second Piano Concerto for Barnes and NEW GENERATIONS represents the fourth album which Barnes has release with OMM including the much heralded album of piano transcriptions from Glass’s operas ORPHEE SUITE, CONCERTO PROJECT VOL.2 (which features Piano Concerto No.2) and The American Virtuoso which focuses on the tradition of virtuoso piano music written by American composers.
