After Mr. Gordon’s Lincoln Center American Songbook, entitled “Bright Eyed Joy,” the New York Times noted, “If the music of Ricky Ian Gordon had to be defined by a single quality, it would be the bursting effervescence infusing songs that blithely blur the lines between art song and the high-end Broadway music of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim…It’s caviar for a world gorging on pizza.”
