The Mozart piece was wonderful - chorus was brillant. 2nd part that the conducter composed, not so great. Don't like discordant sounding music.

“Exhilarating… Music Director Julian Wachner knows how to draw maximum drama from a score.” —The Washington Post 

Description

Marie-Ève Munger, soprano 

Arianna Zukerman, soprano 

Arnold Rawls, tenor 

David Kravitz, baritone 

The Washington Chorus opens its 51st season with the Washington premiere of a major new work by Music Director Julian Wachner, an acclaimed composer with over 100 published works.

“Come, My Dark-Eyed One” combines passionate and dramatic music with poetry by Sarah Teasdale, e.e. cummings, John Clare, Emily Dickinson, Alfred Tennyson and famed Turkik poet Ali-Shir Nava’i whose poem forms the core and title of the work. It speaks of two lovers’ lives and how that great love transcends death itself.
