Kevin Memley has succeeded in writing the perfect concert closer. The virtuosic piano part, late Romantic harmonics, thick textures, and soaring vocal lines sound as if they appeared straight from a Verdi opera. Even the text about love, song, and dance harkens back to earlier times. Singers will adore the melodiousness of the vocal lines and the energetic triplets patterns. If you have three dynamic soloists, look no further for this year’s closer.
