Ross Amico previews at nj.com the Friday and Saturday concerts of The Crossing, with David Lang’s The Little Match Girl Passion and the world premiere of The Consolation of Apollo. (I would normally just have written “premiere,” but for the photo to the left.) The 8 pm performances are at Princeton’s Institute of Advanced Studies, Wolfensohn Hall, October 10th and 11th, with a third on Sunday, October 12th at The Church of the Holy Trinity on Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia at 5 pm. (January 4th and 5th concerts will be in Philadelphia and Wilmington.)
My notes on the piece are here, but Amico uses a good bit from a long interview with me. Much in the article is not in the notes, along with quotes from The Crossing’s conductor Donald Nally, so I encourage anyone interested in Apollo to take a look.
