Notes & Reviews:

"The disc's highlight is the 34-minute long 'Willie the Weeper', one of four planned dance cantatas that, according to the composer, 'mix the singing and dancing so that you don't know where the singers begin or where the dancers end'. Draped on the kind of deceptively informal, almost casual structure that underlies much of the best of American music, this seductive portrait of an American grifter is a gripping piece of musical theatre with moments of striking beauty." - Gramophone
