Four Songs recording

A recording of Four Songs from The Caucasian Chalk Circle has been posted on UMKC Conservatory’s InstantEncore page as part of the Best of Spring 2010 Performances playlist. The performance is by Katherine Crawford, from the February 2010 Composers Guild concert.

The songs themselves are also available on my profile page, and the complete playlist is here (the pieces by my friends Chris Biggs, Caroline Miller, and Brad Baumgardner are all top notch).
