NY Raves About Randal Turner; West Coast Debut on December 6th

Two amazing talents come together: Composer Clint Borzoni & Baritone Randal Turner
Here's a photo of the amazingly gifted young composer Clint Borzoni with barihunk Randal Turner at a recent preview concert in New York. Turner will be making his West Coast debut in San Francisco on December 6th singing the music of living American composers, including an incredible setting of two Walt Whitman songs by Borzoni. The songs are based on "I Dream’d in a Dream" from “Leaves of Grass” and "That Shadow, My Likeness" and are being heard for the first time on the West Coast.

The concert will also include the world premiere of Julia Schwartz's “Don Juan at Forty” from “Histories of Desire” by Ron Butlin, as well as arias by Ricky Ian Gordon and his "Four Poems by Dorothy Parker," Glen Roven's “Four Melancholy Songs” based on poems by William Butler Yeats, arias by Jake Heggie and his songs "In Praise of Songs that Die" based on poem by Vachel Lindsay and "In the Morning" based on an A.E. Housman setting.

Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets.

Three of the composers attended the New York preview concert, as well as Dr. Ruth Westheimer. By all accounts the program was a huge success. If you're on the West Coast, buy your tickets now for this amazing concert and a chance to hear the music by five of the most gifted composers in the world today. If you haven't seen Randal Turner perform before, you're in for a special treat.

Regular visitors to this site will recall that he was also voted by our readers as the "Sexiest Don Giovanni in the World." Rumor has it that he's been hired to sing the role again in early 2011. Details are forthcoming.
