With this brilliant recording of at the exactest point, Tantara welcomes BYU composer Stephen Jones and the prestigious Chicago Symphony Orchestra to its catalog. Contemporary classical music, at the exactest point has been acclaimed by major national composers as “superb,” (Claude Baker, Indiana University), “dazzling, beautiful, personal…very special,” (Augusta Read Thomas, composer in residence, Chicago Symphony Orchestra), and “expertly written and personal” (Melinda Wagner, recipient, 1999 Pulitzer Prize in composition). This is an 18-minute CD, with full-information booklet including color photos.
