Leonard Slatkin


Cindy McTee’s compositions embody the musical and cultural energy of modern-day America.

Circuits, ‘a boisterously jazzy sprint’ (Detroit Free Press), is followed by Symphony No.1, a smartly assembled work whose diverse ideas ‘seemed to unfold naturally within an orchestral fabric that used the ensemble’s full coloristic range’ (The New York Times).

The use of computer music in Einstein’s Dream lends sonic complexity to a piece that celebrates the scientist’s work on quantum theory. Double Play, commissioned by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, ‘hums with craftsmanship and a catholic array of influences across several centuries’ (The Washington Post).
