Creating unutterable longing…

March 28, 2007

This press release just in for a concert sponsored by the American Composers Forum of LA. I’m not sure who does her copy, but I’ll have whatever she’s having.

Soprano Kerry Walsh’s voice conveys joy, pathos, and pain in a way that creates unutterable longing. Hearing Ms. Walsh sing this range of material in a small intimate setting is a rare and exciting experience. Her repertoire ranges from early through modern in chamber music, theatre, and concert, and encompasses standard classical and romantic operatic literature. She has brought numerous roles to life, and is greatly sought after as an interpreter of new works.

The new President of ACF-LA’s board is Kate Gale, a poet and librettist (most recently, of Don Davis’ opera “Rio de Sangre.”). Thus, unutterable longing, and other delightful phrases that make board meetings oh-so-much-more fun. Kerry Walsh is worthy of such a description and will not disappoint. I highly recommend this concert– with music from the old to the very, very new. It will be unutterably wonderful 🙂 For any composer who writes for voice, this will be an ear-opening experience.

ACF/LA Benefit: Kerry Walsh in Concert at 2pm, Ruskin Art Club (800 S. Plymouth Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90005); $30 general public, $20 ACF/LA members.

Also unutterably wonderful was, indeed, Christopher Rouse’s massive “Requiem.” ACF-ers spent the afternoon with him prior to the dress rehearsal, and I think we all looked like that guy in the old Memorex commercial by the end of the 90-minute, 16 movement work, our hair blown back by the Mach 2 force of this powerful, emotional music. Swed’s review was spot on.

It would be great to see you Sunday, Roger!
