In Kaleidoscope, William Kraft plays with all the possible colors afforded by Brightwork's diverse instrumentation. i will learn to love a person is Chris Cerrone's stunning take on young love, millennial angst, and relationships in the 21st century. Text from author Anaïs Nin's deeply personal and introspective diary provide a backdrop for Pamela Madsen's stunning Why Women Weep: IT IS THE QUICKEST WAY TO REJOIN THE OCEAN, for solo cello, spoken voice, and electronics. Tom Flaherty explores three Internal States in this Brightwork commission. Doubt hovers between worlds, never finding resolution. Reverie mixes cloudy textures with expressive solo threads in a darkly ambiguous soundscape. Celebration dances, a lot, in a flood of joyous enthusiasm.
