A World Premiere: Charles Denler's Portraits of Colorado

An American Symphony No. 1 and Six Variations for violin and piano with Scott O'Neil, conducting The Colorado Symphony and Chorus.

"Symphony No. 1...a suite of 10 brief movements each with a descriptive title. These are beautiful miniatures, some with a distant chorus singing in Latin...Audio, as usual with Reference Recordings when working in a fine hall, is superb, rich and defined." — Robert E. Benson,

Portraits of Colorado, An American Symphony No.1 is the first in a series of symphonies composed by Charles Denler. Inspired by a sunrise over the Rocky Mountains, and the incredible works of American painter, Jerry Malzahn, this first symphony carries with it a theme of hope and of new beginnings.

Charles Denler's multiple Emmy Award-winning music for film and television is known worldwide, and his orchestral works have been played by top orchestras. Charles' classical training and strong proficiency with contemporary sound allow him great flexibility and versatility as a composer and pianist. On this album, the Colorado Symphony and Chorus perform his tuneful and evocative music with great style.
