Letters from Gettysburg is an extraordinarily haunting five-movement work that elevates the experience of one man into a memorial to all victims of war.I have listened to this ingeniously crafted piece a half dozen times and each time I have been moved anew, mesmerized by Dorman’s brilliant treatment of Lt. Cady’s words...exquisite performances by soloists Amanda Heim and Lee Poulis, the Gettysburg College Choir, and the Tremolo Percussion Ensemble under the direction of Robert Natter. This impressive CD also includes After Brahms: Three Intermezzos for Piano, which Dorman wrote for pianist Orli Shaham...a very gifted pianist. Her performance here is exquisite. "Nigunim: Violin Sonata No. 3” by Dorman ... is a wildly demanding piece, an ambitious multicultural grab bag. The Shahams’ performances are exhilarating, as one expects from these daring artists.
