Notes & Reviews:

At the heart of composer-vocalist Lisa Bielawa’s new album The Lay of the Love is her 25-minute work, completed in 2006, based on Rainer Maria Rilke’s epic poem, “The Lay of the Love and Death of Cornet Christopher Rilke.” Together the music and lyrics contemplate the loss of innocence and address the sobering notion that all die young. “Wait”, for piano with drone, premiered in 2002, is the second of four related works based on six lines from Pushkin’s “Eugene Onegin”, which Bielawa describes as “passages of great intimacy and vulnerability.” Premiered in 2004, “Hurry”, Bielawa’s recreation in musical time of the experience she had when reading Boris Pasternak’s poem “Hurry, My Verses,” completes the album. Ms. Bielawa is a 2009 Rome Prize winner in Musical Composition. She takes inspiration for her work from literature and artistic collaborations. She began touring with the Philip Glass Ensemble in 1992, and in 1997 co-founded the MATA Festival. She was appointed Artistic Director of the San Francisco Girls Chorus in 2013.
