This performance was presented in partnership with Arts Brookfield and WNYC’s New Sounds Live and hosted by John Schaefer.

The evening-length cantata marries American folk harmonies and textures (instruments include a hammer dulcimer, mouth harp and banjo) with driving minimalist rhythms and Wolfe’s signature dense compositional style.
