Notes and Editorial Reviews



Fire in my mouth, which the NYPO co-commissioned, also featured The Crossing, conducted by Donald Nally, and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, directed by Francisco J. Núñez. The New York Times called the work “ambitious, heartfelt, often compelling. … There is both heady optimism and a sense of dread in Ms. Wolfe’s music. … Mr. van Zweden led a commanding account of a score that … ends with an elegiac final chorus in which the names of all 146 victims are tenderly sung to create a fabric of music and memory.”

REVIEW:

Fire in my mouth is an intense listen. The performances are uniformly strong
Read more throughout, and the recording quality is clean and crisp.
