NOTEWORTHY DEVELOPMENTS!!


Art Music Lounge (April 26, 2018)

IU Orchestras and Arthur Fagan receive favorable review from Lynn René Bayley!

"But what makes the music work is conductor Arthur Fagen’s strongly-accented, emotionally committed performance. He does not approach the score as light music. This may well be the finest single collection of Diamond’s music, and surely one played by a great interpreter who understands his aesthetic."

And on the "clear, forward sound...which particularly helps in such soft music as the “Balcony Scene,” where you can actually hear the vibrato of the strings as clearly as if you were sitting in the front row of a concert hall."
