Mel Martin of Audiophile Audition gives a four-star review to our Charles Denler Portraits of Colorado recording, calling it a “worthwhile listen.”
“The music itself is quite listenable. There are certainly some references to ‘Americana’ and some ‘Coplandesque’ flourishes… The performance by the Colorado Symphony and Chorus conducted by Scott O’Neil is a fine one, and the HDCD recording is beyond criticism. … The CD as a whole is a worthwhile listen…just evocative music well-played and well-recorded. All in all, 44 minutes well spent.” —Mel Martin, Audiophile Audition

“PORTRAITS OF COLORADO, An American Symphony No.1” is the first in a series of symphonies composed by Charles Denler. Inspired by a sunrise over the Rocky Mountains, and the incredible works of American painter, Jerry Malzahn, this first symphony carries with it a theme of hope and of new beginnings.
