Parma Records Releases New LICA CD

On Friday, Jan. 13, 2017, Parma Records is releasing our new CD: “Harmonize Your Spirit With My Calm.” Although Parma has been recording in Russia for years, this is the first time that words will be sung in Russian on a Parma recording, which features the first orchestral recordings of works by LICA composer Joel Mandelbaum.  Helene Williams is the principal soloist in works by each of the two composers, who also perform each other’s music. Settings of poems by Edna St. Vincent Millay and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, a piano prelude and a string quartet are among those works reissued here, from previous performances on LICA concerts, recorded on Capstone Records.  The cover design is based on work by Ellen Mandelbaum.
