In its “Classical Picks for the Holidays,” the independent music website begins its “Top Sellers” list with the recent release Anthony McGill: That Lightness of Spirit, a 2010 release of Anthony McGill Music.

"A year after his performance with Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman and Gabriella Montero at the inauguration of President Obama, virtuoso clarinetist McGill releases his Inaugural CD. It features music from France, Russia and America that truly inspires. Genre: Classical: Sonata. Release Date: 2010. © Copyright-Anthony McGill (884502357493) Record Label: Anthony McGill Music.

Liner Notes:
“Anthony McGill has chosen an elegant and lyrical program of music from France, America, and Russia, nearly all from the early 20th century. This period saw the birth of modernism — including Cubism, Expressionism, Dadaism, Surrealism, and Futurism — yet this CD focuses on music that shares, in the words of Francis Poulenc, 'that lightness of spirit without which life would be unendurable.'”
