About the album
American Tapestry celebrates four composers, Robert Beaser, Aaron Copland, Robert Muczynski and Lowell Liebermann, whose musical languages remained distinctly tonal amidst the pervasive compositional climate of mid-20th century American serialism. Each of these composers freely infused their music with popular styles including jazz, folk, pop and musical theater. Remarkable on this recording is the stellar duo playing of Susan Rotholz and Margaret Kampmeier, who combine brilliant instrumental virtuosity with deep understanding of this quintessentially American repertoire.
