Synopsis

Product Description
Andy Teirstein's background in
movement theater (from his early
work as a musical clown in a Mexican
circus to his long association with
music for dance) has given him a
unique perspective on the dramatic
possibilities of composition. The
works heard here translate theatrical
physicality into a variety of musical
impulses, drawing inspiration from
Balkan, Appalachian and Jewish
influences, the music of Bartók, and
setting the poetry of Mahmoud
Darwish and Robert Service. The
results juxtapose folk and new-music
styles in a series of compelling and
highly satisfying scenarios.
