SO MANY JOURNEYS
MUSIC INSPIRED BY SHAKESPEARE FROM THIS UNABASHED OXFORDIAN, JOSEPH SUMMER.
The release of So Many Journeys marks the 400th anniversary of the publication of Shakespeare’s sonnets. This recording, performed by members of The Shakespeare Concerts, contains two of the 26 sonnets set by composer Joseph Summer, an unabashed Oxfordian, as well as pieces from his opera Hamlet. The Sonata is a set of variations based on a baritone aria from Summer’s opera Courting Disaster.
“This music is well worth hearing; its original and imaginative tonal language is given creative expression by these excellent musicians.” (American Record Guide)
