Observing the landscape of contemporary classical, one might assume that the art music community has shifted its focus away from the melodic, harmonious, and accessible. CONVERGENCE, an album of works by David Nisbet Stewart and George Gershwin, presents just the opposite: imaginative, expressive works that appeal to performers and audiences alike. Alongside Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, Stewart’s Concerto for piano and orchestra and Suite for piano-brass quartet prove that contemporary composers can maintain stylistic integrity with a broad appeal.
