Synopsis

Album Description
This CD presents the first recorded fruits of a new era in the musical output of David Del Tredici. The art-song form is relatively new to the composer, but even more significant is the selection of poetry. By a variety of authors, mostly contemporary and American, it explicitly addresses modern life and sexuality, particularly the experience of gay men. The frankness of language and the diversity of sources are major departures for Del Tredici, who previously focused exclusively (and for years at a time) on two authors, first James Joyce and later, and most famously, Lewis Carroll. Yet most important of all is the music itself, and Del Tredici responds to this new palette of texts with fresh energy and newborn spirit. Though emotional content was never absent from Del Tredici?s earlier works, in these intimate songs the composer offers himself more openly and candidly than ever before.
