To many Dave Brubeck is the jazz pianist who led a famous quartet. Yet in the wake of the quartet's fame, many have overlooked Dave Brubeck the classical composer, the creator of what has become a sizable shelf of remarkable choral works. This month Telarc celebrates this side of Brubeck with the release of his Mass, To Hope! A Celebration.
This huge work enlists the forces of a chorus, vocal soloists, an orchestra and Dave's own jazz quartet. This release is a musical powerhouse captured on record in one of America's most stunning structures, The National Cathedral in Washington D.C.
