Description: Rhythmic drive and orchestral color are the main characteristics of Actor's orchestral music, often with an ostinato running through a piece whose stopping or changing of pace can mark a sudden change in the emotional content of the work, increasing its dramatic impact. The works recorded here are all recent, dating from 2007 to 2010, and all commissioned by orchestras in the San Jose/Silicon Valley area. Slovak National Symphony Orchestra, Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra; Kirk Trevor.
