About

The Collection 'America' is a window on American music of the 20th century, whether classical (3 doubles on harmonia mundi), blues or jazz (4 doubles on Le Chant du Monde).

Each of these anthologies focuses on the origin, purpose and evolution of America: as a haven for new immigrants, including Dvorak; for victims of Nazism and Stalinism; and the modern or the post-modern USA of John Cage, George Crumb or Leonard Bernstein, via a Broadway detour to celebrate the great musical crossroads that is George Gershwin.

Frank Braley plays the 18 Songs from the American Songbook.
