New Voices: Earthquakes and Islands
A newly commissioned work by esteemed Canadian composer Andrew Staniland on the brutally honest, strange, and powerful poetry of Robin Richardson.
Earthquakes and Islands is a co-commission with Sparks & Wiry Cries and the Brooklyn Art Song Society. An ambitious song cycle, this piece melds the poetry of Robin Richardson, including poems from her forthcoming third volume of poetry “Sit how you want,” in combination with the lyrical, forceful, moving musical landscape of composer Andrew Staniland.
The program will be complemented by Robert Schumann’s beloved song cycle Dichterliebe.
