Messiaen: Oiseaux Exotiques (Exotic Birds)
John McLaughlin Williams, conductor; Angelin Chang (Cleveland Chamber Symphony)
Track from: Cleveland Chamber Symphony: Music That Dares To Explore, Vol. 6
[TNC CD 1515]

"Oiseaux Exotiques," recorded in Waetjen Auditorium at Cleveland State University in May 2004, features pianist Angelin Chang and the Cleveland Chamber Symphony conducted by John McLaughlin Williams. Jack Gallagher, on leave from Wooster College in May 2004, was hired to serve as producer for "Oiseaux Exotiques" and Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 1. Gallagher joined a team including recording engineer David Yost of Cleveland State University, soloist Chang, and conductor Williams.

Gallagher's GRAMMY winning colleagues were generous in their recollection of his role as producer. Conductor Williams said "Jack Gallagher is a professor of great accomplishment and a composer of refined sensitivity. He brought all his tremendous gifts to bear upon the Cleveland Chamber Symphony's Grammy winning recording, for which he was the producer. The acuity of his ear and the musicality of his contribution was such an influence that it would not be an overstatement to say the nomination earned by the recording wouldn't have been possible without his insightful guidance."
Soloist Chang said, "I attribute the success of the recording to (Gallagher's) impeccable ears, insight, and gracefulness with the artists. At every moment, there was confidence and appreciation in having him as the producer. As a composer, he understood the essence of the score and intertwinings of the instruments."

Recording engineer Yost added, "I am positive that we could not have achieved our success with this recording without (Gallagher's) musical vision and ears. He was the best producer I have worked with, and I think the team we had was magic."
