These Distances Between Us - 21st Century Songs Of
Format: COMPACT DISC
Santore, Jonathan; Koriath, Tad; Jaworski Koriath, Emily; Brandwein, Craig
The four American composers onthis album have all won recognition for their diverse approaches to contemporary art song. Both Emmy-nominated Craig Brandwein, in his beautiful Three Rilke Songs and Jonathan Santore in Two Letters of Sulpicia use computer generated electronics to enhance the vocal line, while Edie Hill’s setting of poems by Amy Lowell exemplifies why her music has been described as ‘full of mystery’ (Stereophile). The common thread running throughout Jessica Rudman’s works is expressivity, and These Distances Between Us charts a cycle that recognizes the precarious nature of personal connections.
