Red Rock Rondo: Secret Gift at the Symphony CD Release

When musician/composer Phillip Bimstein read Ted Gup’s A Secret Gift (Penguin Press, 2010), he heard music. Gup, a journalist, was given a trunk filled with Depression-era letters written to his grandfather as responses to a newspaper ad, placed just before Christmas—an offer to give a small sum anonymously to those in need. Bimstein used some of these stories for a song cycle, which was performed and recorded by his band, Red Rock Rondo, backed by the Salt Lake Symphony, in December 2011. For more information about the album and, specifically, four of the 14 tracks, in Bimstein’s words, read the Liner Notes blog.
