Discover poetry in motion with Beauty Come Dancing, composer Gordon Getty’s new album of choral works. Love and dance permeate this collection of new music, paying homage to the romantic and elegant traditions abounding in the latter half of the 19th century. Here, Getty finds inspiration in the poetry of John Keats, Lord Byron, John Masefield, Sara Teasdale, Edwin Arlington Robinson, and Ernest Christopher Dowson. These settings sit alongside choral treatments of three of Getty’s original poems, plus his arrangement of traditional favorite “Shenandoah.” Rising-star conductor James Gaffigan leads the Netherlands Radio Choir and Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in PENTATONE’s beautiful recording. The music of the American composer Gordon Getty has been performed in such prestigious venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, London’s Royal Festival Hall, Vienna’s Brahmssaal, and Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Hall and Bolshoi Theatre, as well as at the Aspen, Spoleto, and Bad Kissingen Festivals. Getty has enjoyed a fruitful relationship with the Pentatone label. In addition to his three operas and Joan and the Bells, Pentatone has released an album devoted to six of his orchestral pieces, with Sir Neville Marriner conducting the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields; two albums of his choral works, Young America and The Little Match Girl; an album of his solo piano works played by Conrad Tao; and The White Election, a much-performed song cycle on poems by Emily Dickinson.
