Reviews For Boyer: Ellis Island - The Dream of America By Artist Peter Boyer & Philharmonia Orchestra

  • A Fantastic Piece of Contemporary American Classical

    By Steven.Limpert
    In "Ellis Island - The Dream of America," Peter Boyer has composed a stunningly beautiful and emotionally evocative piece in the tradition of Aaron Copland's "Lincoln Portrait." Combing neo-romantic music with the spoken word, "Ellis Island - The Dream of America" tells the autobiographical tales of seven immigrants of the early 20th century. With both powerful solo orchestral passages and effective orchestral accompaniment colorings, this piece should prove an enjoyable listen for the experienced American classical music enthusiast and the inexperienced, alike.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
