Notes & Reviews:

The music of Arlene Sierra (b. 1970) has begun to make waves on both sides of the Atlantic. With recent commissions by the New York Philharmonic, the Royal Opera and the New York City Opera, the British-based young American composer has found devoted advocates among many leading performers of our time. The American Academy of Arts and Letters cited Sierra recently: "Arlene Sierra's music is, by turns, urgent, poetic, evocative, and witty. She has a keen appreciation of instrumental sonorities and the inherent drama of successive musical atmospheres. Intriguing, passionate, mysterious, her recent work, Cicada Shell, confidently announces the arrival of a significant composer." This recording marks the first CD devoted to Sierra's music.
