A Standing Witness

Tanglewood Music Center, Lenox, MA

"A Standing Witness" has the potential to become one of the most influential compositions of this century" (Vermont Public Radio). This monumental collaboration between Grammy Award-winning composer Richard Danielpour and Pulitzer Prize-winning author and former U.S. Poet Laureate Rita Dove was created especially for the incomparable mezzo-soprano Susan Graham and Music from Copland House. The soaring music and probing poetry of this epic cycle is a sweeping retrospective tracing enormous social, cultural, technological, and political upheavals in the U.S. since the watershed year of 1968. There is no more timely or provocative work for this pivotal moment in American history; these are, as Opera News raved, "songs America needs to hear."
