New to the Carl Fischer catalog from composer Sebastian Currier is this exciting and innovative work commissioned and recorded by Mosaic, a chamber performance group. Quick accented whispers dominate the central section of the piece with repressed intensity, which has the performers playing with great vitality all in a pianissimo. A generally reposeful quietude frames this sense of repressed urgency in this piece.
