About

Bridge’s “George Perle: Retrospective” celebrates the music of one of America’s greatest compositional voices with a two-disc set of pieces written between 1957 and 2004. 
 
Encompassing solo, chamber, choral and orchestral music, the album presents twelve compositions, including the premiere recordings of six of George Perle’s pieces, and re-issues two major Perle recordings: the Concerto No. 2 for Piano and Orchestra; and the Serenade No. 3 for Piano and Chamber Orchestra. 
 
In addition to these major Perle masterpieces, the set includes rarities such as Perle’s lovely arrangement of Two French Christmas Carols from 1958, and his last completed composition, Bassoon music of 2004. 
 
The recordings are performed by many of Perle’s greatest champions, including Horacio Guttiérrez, Curtis Macomber, Michael Boriskin, Joseph Silverstein, Richard Goode, and Gerard Schwarz, and also includes a short work performed by the composer’s wife, pianist Shirley Perle. 
 
Along with more than two-and-a-half hours of music, Bridge’s “George Perle: Retrospective” includes a booklet with historic photographs of George Perle with many of the 20th century’s leading musicians.
