Notes and Editorial Reviews

Originally written as a song cycle, Timothy Nelson re-composed Songs of the Fisherman for the forces seen on this video. Tenor Brian Arreola and choreographer Gretchen Alterowitz hoped to find a way to synthesize the lyrical power of operatic singing with the kinesthetic narrative potential of dance. The singer-dancer relationship is fluid throughout the work, with the dancer taking on shifting roles of lover, rival and society. A three-movement piece for solo violin, Jorge Grossmann’s La Ricerca della Spiritualità Transcendente deals with the subject of spirituality and even symbolizes an open-ended journey in search for inner growth. The work is performed by Wei-Wei Le, who has performed around the world and won numerous Read more international violin competitions. Read less
