“Across Oceans: Chamber, Vocal and Solo Music by Thomas Osborne” released by Aperio

After years in the making, I’m pleased to announce the release of Aperio: Music of the America’s new recording “Across Oceans: Chamber, Vocal and Solo Music by Thomas Osborne.” This is a group whose members I’ve worked with for well over a decade, and they’ve recorded an entire CD of my pieces. The disc includes Tracy Satterfield’s incredible performances of two song sets (Songs of a Thousand Autumns and Dreams of Sky and Sea), pianist Jason Hardink’s premiere recording of And the Waves Sing Because They are Moving, and Michael Zuraw and Craig Hauschildt’s interpretation of the piano/percussion duo Like Still Water.

I’m really pleased with how the recordings came out, and I’ve posted a few samples below. As of now the CD is available from MSR Classics and Amazon, and will soon be available for download online. Thanks to all the performers on the disc: Michael Zuraw, piano; Tracy Satterfield, soprano; Jason Hardink, piano; Craig Hauschildt, percussion; Andres Gonzalez, violin; Suzanne LeFevre, viola; Patrick Moore, cello; and Kimi Kawashima, piano.
