Performers Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Prayers Remain Forever” presents premiere studio recordings of five recent chamber works by composer Martin Bresnick. The title work reflects Bresnick’s concerns “about what we doin response to terrible human cruelty.” Ishi's Song reflects on the last Yahi Indian survivor. An etching in Francisco de Goya’s great Disasters of War sequence inspired Strange Devotion. The personal, poignant Going Home - Vysoke, My Jerusalem, draws on Bresnick’s history as an oboist and memories of his ancestors. Two works, A Message From the Emperor and Josephine The Singer, are inspired by Kafka stories.
