Description

 

Baritone Timothy Jones and flutist Angela Rous will help close our 2012-2013 season with this powerful concert, celebrating the voice and the story. SOLI’s sixth commission of the season, Amichai Songs by Daniel Asia will be the centerpiece of the program. Originally written for Asia’s newly recorded Symphony No. 5, these songs are inspired by the poems of famous Israeli poet Yehuda Amichai. Another World Premiere will be Daniel Asia's new solo clarinet work followed by Frederic Rzewski’s Coming Together. This iconic work has powerful text taken from a letter written by Sam Melville, an inmate killed in the 1971 Attica prison riots. Our third and final “Women in Music” featured work is Judith Shatin’s Werther, inspired by Goethe’s novel, “Sorrow of Young Werther.” Opera Theater San Antonio’s music director Tobias Picker’s setting of I am in Need of Music by poet Elizabeth Bishop and JefferyMumford’sFurther Evolving round out the program.
