Daron Hagen’s new concert-length song cycle features the verse of poets that for him have fueled a lifetime of song composition. Co-commissioned by Lyric Fest and The Brooklyn Art Song Society, the new work is scored for vocal sextet in various solos and ensemble movements, accompanied by piano four hands.
The Philadelphia world premiere is followed by the Brooklyn premiere on June 5, 2020.
