Description: This release follows the winding path taken by Antheil throughout his career with four standout works exemplifying his various creative periods. Golden Bird (1921), an exotically instrumented miniature of “Chinese coloration,” is followed by the iridescent music for the ballet Dreams (1934), a 30-minute score commissioned by Balanchine. The two Serenades (1947-48) show us a composer of digestible and easily graspable music, 180 degrees from his youthful “Bad Boy of Music” period, who was searching for a genuine “American sound” and who, during the course of his life, learned that modesty can be a key to success. Württemberg Philharmonic Reutlingen; Fawzi Haimor.
