DANIEL PAGET - BIOGRAPHY
Daniel Paget DANIEL PAGET, Music Director of the Westchester Chorale since 1984, has led highly-praised performances of works ranging from the a cappella repertoire of the Renaissance to the War Requiem of Benjamin Britten. Mr. Paget has recorded new choral works for Atlantic Records, CRI and others. He has been described by The New York Times as "a stimulating interpreter whose energy and enthusiasm are thoroughly infectious." Under his leadership, the Westchester Chorale has presented traditional repertory in the light of new perspectives incorporating modern scholarship, while also introducing overlooked gems. Recent concerts include A Clash of Titans, exploring Handel's early experience in Italy and his relations there with Vivaldi and D. Scarlatti; Glorious Chorus and Brass, which introduced Mr. Paget's new arrangement for chorus and brass ensemble of Charles Ives' General William Booth Enters into Heaven; and, in collaboration with the Westchester Chamber Orchestra, a concert-with-commentary entitled The Mozart Requiem: the Evolution of a Masterwork, illuminating Mozart's use of Handel and Bach as musical sources for the Requiem. A composer and arranger, Mr. Paget's works have been performed around the country and abroad. A review in Fanfare (July-August 2006) described Mr. Paget's work as "brilliant" and "expert," and "strongly recommended" the recording. Flutist Carol Wincenc commissioned his Romania!, a work based on Romanian folk music, for her Lincoln Center debut, which she gave as winner of the prestigious Naumburg Award; the concert concluded with the work, which, according to the New York Times, "raised the audience to heaven. Chamber music concerts at festivals in Fredericksburg, Seattle and Pennsylvania have been devoted entirely to his work. His arrangements of songs by Alec Wilder, and his own composition The Mulligan Gambol appear on the CD Dreamscape (Koch International), featuring Metropolitan Opera soprano Heidi Grant Murphy and the Aureole ensemble. Mr. Paget's work was warmly reviewed by Opera News. Recent performances of his music in Westchester include his setting of e.e. cummings' poem anyone lived in a pretty how town at a fund-raising concert in support of research into Parkinson's disease. Mr. Paget has long specialized in music of the ragtime era, which he has performed around the country and abroad, in venues ranging from New York's Museum of Modern Art to television studios in Singapore, Sumatra and Java. Daniel Paget is a senior professor of music at the City University of New York's John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and has served there as chair of the Department of Art, Music and Philosophy. He has written feature articles for the Sunday edition of The New York Times and the former High Fidelity magazine, as well as extensive notes for recordings of complete sets of the Chopin Nocturnes and Mazurkas, issued by Concord., and he has been host and pre-concert lecturer for the Little Orchestra Society's Sunset Serenatas at Lincoln Center, part of the Society's Vivaldi's Venice series.
