× Voices of Our Time features five of today’s most prominent composers. The works by U.S. composers John Corigliano and John Harbison look to composers of previous generations for inspiration: Corigliano’s Fancy on a Bach Air departs from the Cello Suites of J.S. Bach, while Harbison’s November 19, 1828 is a “tombeau” to Franz Schubert. Bright Sheng’s Four Movements for Piano Trio and Osvaldo Golijov’s Yiddishbbuk illustrate the global expansion of the chamber music literature to include the influences of the music of other cultures, while Ned Rorem’s powerful Aftermath, a song cycle written to commemorate September 11, 2001, reflects on the changes and challenges facing humanity at the dawn of the 21st century.
