One of the most celebrated and wide-ranging American composers of our time, John Harbison (b.1938) has an abiding interest in American jazz, folksong and hymns, which can be heard in his collection of solos and canons 'Songs America Loves to Sing' (2004).

It is presented here alongside 'Four Songs of Solitude' (1985) for solo violin, and the world premiere recording of the 'String Trio' (2013), commissioned and performed by members of Camerata Pacifica.

Harbison is also the composer of symphonies, string quartets, concertos and 'The Great Gatsby', a Metropolitan Opera commision for James Levine's 25th anniversary with the company.

Camerata Pacifica, founded by Northern Irish-born Adrian Spence, is based in Santa Barbara, California, but the musicians are drawn from the USA and abroad, and have included Nichoas Daniel [oboe] and South Korean TV star Richard Yongjae O'Neill on viola.
