Product Description

Shelter is the result of an unusual collaboration among Bang on a Can's founding composers Michael Gordon, David Lang and Julia Wolfe. Scored for three sopranos and a 17-piece ensemble, the project explores what 'shelter' means in different cultures. Ensemble Signal's debut recording, under music director Brad Lubman and producer Michael Riesman, was originally commissioned for The Next Wave Festival by the Brooklyn Academy of Music and premiered with Trio Mediaeval in Cologne, Germany in 2005.


Q2 Music Album ov the Week for April 1, 2013: Individually, David
Lang, Michael Gordon and Julia Wolfe are three of New York's most
important composers; together, under the name Bang on a Can, they're
an institution and a supergroup. Bang on a Can's festivals,
commissions and Cantaloupe record label make it a pillar of new music
in New York, and every once in a while, the three composers join
forces to create a single piece of music, with successive movements in
their audibly distinct but closely related styles, as in their opera
The Carbon Copy Building or the oratorio Lost Objects.

Their new Cantaloupe release, Shelter, reunites the trio with Lost
Objects librettist Deborah Artman, for a new oratorio that examines
what it means to be at home. Shelter is a universal need, and so
Artman and the collective explore it in ways that tease out both the
universality of that need and the disparity of the means by which it's
addressed. --WQXR Radio, Daniel Stephen Johnson
