Notes and Editorial Reviews

The group that presents this chamber opera is a small band of singers, instrumentalists, and theater artists dedicated to the development of a repertoire of intimate sung dramas which combine the impact of live theater with the clarity of film close-ups, and the liveliness of the musical avant-garde with the suaveness of American pop classics. Michael Kowalski was born in Buffalo, New York. He began his musical studies with his father who was a popular lounge pianist in upstate New York. He pursued further studies at Oberlin, the University of Iowa and the University of Illinois. He also studied at Tanglewood with Betsy Jolas. Fraternity of Deceit was premiered in March 1998, in New York City.
