Description: Fuchs' music is big-boned and neo-Romantic and covers a range from Coplandesque "wide open spaces" to John Adams' brand of a motoric minimalism running along beneath bright and melodic upper voices. Everything is easily approchable and lyrically melodic. Michael Ludwig (violin), Paul Silverthorne (viola), London Symphony Orchestra; JoAnn Falletta.
