Each week, PARMA has the pleasure of not only releasing powerful works by our artists, but also seeing the positive impact that these works have on listeners. Read on for a selection of what the press had to say about the latest releases from Navona, Ravello and Big Round Records.
“Drawing on his Korean American heritage, VanHemert wrote the album as a response to the prejudice and persecution Asian Americans have experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the album explores a range of topics, including police killings and the resulting Black Lives Matter protests in 2020.”
“It all reminds us that we live in a world where the music keeps springing forth no matter how the world fares otherwise.”
Gapplegate Classical on SUSTAIN VOL. 2 featuring works by Karen A. Tarlow, Chen-Hsin Su, John Craven, Gordon Monahan, Ron Nagorcka, Kenneth Kuhn, Jim Puckett, Sarah Wallin-Huff, Bill Sherrill, John A. Carollo.
