Michael Canales (b. 1963) — Ascension Postlude in D (2013) for organ

The composer writes the following about “Ascension Postlude in D” (2013): “The melancholy of Ascension Sunday has always moved me very much. Seeing Christ ascend must have been both a wondrous and sad event for the apostles.”

Michael Canales (b. 1963) has received major grants from organizations such as the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation, and the Nevada Arts Council for his work as a composer and conductor. He has composed music in many genres including opera and symphonic works. As a conductor, Canales specializes in opera, and he has conducted the works of Mozart, Puccini, Verdi, and Wagner, as well as much other standard repertoire. He was the founder and director of Pasadena Lyric Opera for seven seasons. Canales is also an accomplished classical guitarist, as well as a pianist, organist, and percussionist.
