Notes & Reviews:
World premiere recording of Ricky Ian Gordon's most personal and intimate work, written in search of solace from grief after the loss of his partner, Jeffrey Grossi, to AIDS, and following their last few months together. Hailed as "a triumph," "superb mini-opera," "a masterpiece" by Opera Today, American Record Guide and others, every live performance of the piece becomes a cathartic experience and leaves the audience transformed and uplifted. The original cast of the production - the superb Miami String Quartet and the rising star of opera and recital stage baritone Jesse Blumberg - is beautifully captured in the fabulous setting of Blue Griffin's The Ballroom studio with the loving guidance of the composer himself.Notes & Reviews:
