Alumnus Matthew McCright's Album Featured in the "Star Tribune"
Matthew McCright (DMA 2004, piano, student of Lydia Artymiw)'s new album What is Left Behind is featured in the Star Tribune article "Minnesota composer narrates Central American migrant's journey with 'The Way North.'" Composer Reinaldo Moya's "The Way North" is the main work on a new album, and McCright and Moya are interviewed for the article. What Is Left Behind is his sixth solo album. A previous recording featuring piano works by French composer Olivier Messiaen (released in 2015) was hailed by Fanfare magazine for its "superb musicality and feeling." McCright has been senior lecturer of piano at Carleton College since 2005.
