Word of Mouth, Mvt. 1
Posted By Orpheus Chamber Orchestra
Orpheus Chamber Orchestra commissioned Brooklyn-based composer Timo Andres as part of the first cohort of American Notes. Timo’s new work, entitled Word of Mouth, drew on the American southern tradition of shape-note singing. This work premiered at Carnegie Hall and on tour in February 2015.
This excerpt is a wonderful example of Orpheus’ commitment to new music and to nurturing new voices and to expanding the boundaries of new music.
