A most interesting interpretation with excellent use of cinema to enhance this avant garde performance. Jessye Norman's voice is always amazing and Neena Freelon is wonderful to hear as were the two other performers The drummer was a joy and the orchestra and conductor innovative. In all it was good. It was hard to read the subtitles on the screen unless one had binoculars, which I did. Hard to keep hold them throughout. Not sure how else it could have been done. The repetition was at times tedious.
This heady mixture weaves the collective memories of America and the hopes for its future into a tapestry of orchestral music and sound samples.
Laura Karpman, composer
