HENRY BRANT: Vol. 5 Autumn Hurricanes
Subtitled ‘A Spatial cantata for Widely Separated Vocal and Instrumental Groups’ this 1986 composition features eight discreet and separated ensembles and soloists, each maintaining their own tempi against but contemporaneous with the others (under the direction of five conductors). Across seven sections describing Caribbean hurricanes, this rich, swirling work never loses focus, never repeats itself and constantly moves on to the next idea, and the next, like a restless, shape-shifting juggernaut.
