The US premiere of Felix und Clara by Dutch composer Jacques Bank, performed by Cantori, about the troubled relationship of Clara Schumann and her son Felix. The chorus sings the voice of Felix; noted actor Kathleen Chalfant (Angels in America; Wit) takes the role of Clara.
Also featured on this program is the world premiere of Four Songs by Frank Brickle. The composer has skillfully arrived at atmospheric treatments of an unusual collection of texts by four 20th century American poets within the throbbing soundscape of a string quartet.CGNY
