Peter Scott Lewis – The Four Cycles

The Four Cycles

Peter Scott Lewis
Naxos-American Classics, 2016


“The music of San Francisco composer Peter Scott Lewis combines ingratiating surfaces – strong boned tonal harmonies and melodic gracefulness – with secure structural underpinnings that keep everything logically in place. The results come through handsomely in the compilation of four song cycles of various hues and scales, all of them performed with delicacy and vigor. But the tiny, sparkling gem here is “Three Songs from Ish River,” a gorgeous and maddeningly brief triptych delivered superbly by Soprano Susan Narucki and guitarist Colin McAllister. It’s painful to arrive so quickly at the end.”

-Joshua Kosman (San Francisco Chronicle)

“The versatile, accomplished Soprano Susan Narucki and dexterous guitarist Colin McAllister perform all three songs smoothly and persuasively.”

-Joshua Rosenblum (Opera News)
