Notes and Editorial Reviews

Michael Hersch releases "I hope we get a chance to visit soon", a follow up companion piece to his critically acclaimed monodrama, "On the Threshold of Winter.” Scored for two sopranos (Ah Young Hong and Kiera Duffy) and ensemble, the work revisits a common theme for Hersch, cancer — in this case, the music embodies the struggle and grief over the loss of a close friend of his. His work described by The New York Times as "viscerally gripping and emotionally transformative music...claustrophobic and exhilarating at once, with moments of sublime beauty nestled inside thickets of dark virtuosity,” composer Michael Hersch is widely regarded as among today's most gifted artists. "so sincere in his darkness, and so Read more sophisticated in his expressivity, that he can make the morbid magical" (New York Magazine) Read less
