Remembering Dominick Argento

I am so grateful for Dominick Argento’s music and imagination, and I am an infinitely better musician having learned and prepared his music as a conductor and singer. Artists of his caliber are exceedingly rare, and those of us lucky enough to have breathed life into his music know the good fortune we have enjoyed. His support of my work has meant the world to me.

If there is a heaven, Dominick Argento will be sitting at a table talking about opera with Benjamin Britten and Claudio Monteverdi. Now there’s a consort! – by Matthew Culloton
