About

This world premiere recording of four recent orchestral works by acclaimed composer Dan Locklair opens with the powerful Symphony no.2 ‘America’, the orchestral fireworks of which celebrate three significant American holidays. This work was summed up by Classical Voice North Carolina as ‘soon-to-be-a-hit’ for its highly rhythmical and lyrical character, typical features of Locklair’s music. Hail the Coming Day is a festive celebration of the consolidation of the towns of Winston and Salem in 1913, while the antiphonal dialogues of PHOENIX celebrate new life. The Concerto for Organ and Orchestra movingly unites ancient and modern musical techniques to create a work of dazzling and exquisite beauty.

The music of Dan Locklair is widely performed throughout the US, Canada and the world. His many awards have included consecutive ASCAP Awards since 1981. Renowned as an organist, Locklair is famously known for his organ work Rubrics, considered one of the most popular 20th/21st-century American solo organ piece all over the world.
