Collage New Music Ensemble/Gunther Schuller:
Collage
COLLAGE coverNew England's venerable contemporary music group presents a program of new works by three highly respected young composers.

Roger Bourland offers exciting possibilities for relationships between the art of color and space and the art of sound and time.

Using texts from Hermann Hesse, Richard Busch evokes a wonderfully dark and sultry vocal style. 

Marc-Antonio Consoli's Fantasia Celeste was commissioned by Collage and adopts its text from Dante's Divine Comedy.

(Also on GM Recordings, hear Collage on The Music of Louis Gruenberg and Imbrie: Pilgrimage/McLennan: Essay.)

"Expert and expressive."
