With works described as “an inspired creation” (Music & Vision), “original and quite brilliant” (Fanfare), and “immensely poetic” (Tempo), Jonathan Little has planted himself as a luminary contemporary composer. On POLYHYMNIA, his first release on Navona Records, Little is able to transform traditional influences into rich, intense, and finely structured music that lives up to his reputation. POLYHYMNIA features Polyhymnia and Terpsichore, two orchestral pieces from Little’s Nine Muses series, along with the powerful Fanfare, the atmospheric string quintet Sacred Prelude, and the intricate polychoral Kyrie.
