On his third album of original classical compositions, Making The Streets Safe For Classical Music, Again (Classical Angst), 40-year-old composer/arranger/pianist Brian Conn exhibits his range. There are two piano pieces - "Romulus and Remus" and "Salve of the Beast," and a richly orchestrated piece with strings - "Falling on Love (To Those Who've Grown Apart)." The remaining vocal compositions, including "L'Amero Saro Costante" and "Wanting Not But That Of Youth," should delight the opera queens far and wide.
