About the event
Composer David M. Gordon, after hearing Kayleen and I perform his song setting ‘Fader, stilla våra andar,’ which he praised as being ‘deeply moving and extraordinarily precise,’ composed the monumental song cycle ‘Mysteria Incarnationis’ for us. As its dedicatees, Kayleen and I were honored to perform the world premiere alongside violinist Eka Gogichashvili in 2015. The work is incredibly demanding and virtuosic for the performers, with its dense polymetric textures, quarter-tonal sound world, and intricate passagework, and creates an otherworldly, haunting, jarring, and ultimately moving experience for the listener. The piece is novel in the extreme, yet its visceral punch is primal in nature.
