About the album

Dance Mix represents the breathtaking diversity of contemporary classical music. Each of these eleven composers, all American, has treated a dance form differently. ‘They’ve added a symphonic dimension to the dance,’ says David Zinman. ‘They’re using the dance as a source for whatever expression they want to make. It’s not just dance music: it’s similar to what Picasso did with images.’ The dances themselves come from popular genres seldom found in the traditional orchestral concert hall. The thrilling performances are vividly captured in big, bold Argo sound.
