THE TRANSFIGURATION OF GIOVANNI BAUDINO

Release Date: 8/25/2017

AMAZON  |  iTUNES  |  NAXOS DIRECT  |  SPOTIFY  |  ARKIVMUSIC

"As our very first vinyl release and the 500th PARMA album released, this project is particularly special to us."

This, like Carollo's other works, has a structural resiliency that both embraces and simultaneously defies the melodic and harmonic materials that constitute it. - Editorial Review, Amazon.com

Overall, this is important music by an important American composer, one with a quite distinctive voice and language. The well-executed performances are deeply committed, the recorded sound could hardly be bettered, and for anyone with curiosity about trends in contemporary music, Carollo’s disc is close to essential.  Henry Fogel

STARRY NIGHT for String Orchestra

Release Date: March 29, 2011

AMAZON  |  iTUNES  |  SPOTIFY  |  ARKIVMUSIC

This newest disc further confirms Carollo as a major compositional voice.

The disc takes its title from the first piece, Starry Night for string orchestra. Brilliantly and inventively written, the piece dwells on the “fear of the unknown.” This vital composition is captured in close, involving sound.

Transcendence in the Age of War (Concert Band version): One of the composer’s most emotionally powerful utterances, it deserves a place in the repertoire.

Colin Clarke - Fanfare

GHOSTS - Solos & Duets

Release Date: December, 2010

Contains Metamorphosis No. 3 for solo violin

TRANSCENDENCE IN THE AGE OF WAR

Release Date: July 1, 2009

AMAZON  |  iTUNES  |  SPOTIFY

It was the final work on the disc that made the greatest impact, however, even though it lasts a mere five minutes. Let Thy Mind Be Still was inspired by a book of Taoist meditations by Dend Ming-Dao, and Carollo tells us that “this piece speaks to the quiet stillness where peace and contentment exist and where earthly fancies are left behind.” This beautiful contemplative work could easily have a regular place in the repertoire of orchestras if conductors and administrators were aware of it. Instead of one more performance of Barber’s Adagio for Strings (a piece I dearly love), Let Thy Mind Be Still would resonate with listeners in a similar way, while introducing them to something new.

Henry Fogel - Fanfare
