Product Notes

This release features Javelin, written for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in conjunction with the 1996 Olympics. "Javelin is lithe and sleek and very athletic and heroic in tone-it's bright and breezy countenance more than fulfilling it's sporting brief." - Gramophone. "It's got memorable tunes and spunky post-minimalist animation; it's up to date yet perfectly designed to capture the essence of the Games. It has the ability to lift the spirit time and time again." -Los Angeles Times [Javelin] "... Both the flickering Orientals of the opening movement's main motif, and the sweetly-breathed rhapsody spun by the soloist in the slow middle movement, are evidence that Torke's gift for melody is richer than his large scale "colour" works for orchestra suggest." - Classic CD [Saxophone Concerto] "... The movie soundtrack genre is stretched and enervated... " - New York Times [Run] "Here [is] a big-city night on the town, full of bright lights and big bangs. The [piece] is in little jolts of changing meters, but respected in all of them is one underlying sense of momentum." -New York Times [Charcoal]
