Andrew Staniland: Earthquakes and Islands (World-Premiere)

Martha Guth, soprano; Tyler Duncan, baritone; Michael Brofman, Erika Switzer, piano


  Brooklyn Art Song Society concludes its sixth season on May 22nd, 2016 with the world premiere of Andrew Staniland's Earthquakes and Islands, a co-commission with the Casement Fund Song Series.  This evening-length work by one of Canada's most esteemed young composers features settings of the strange, beautiful and brutally honest poetry of Robin Richardson.  Mr. Staniland's music has been called "alternately beautiful and terrifying" by the New Yorker and Ms. Richardson's has been praised as "one of the best young poets of her generation".  Esteemed Canadian singers  Martha Guth and baritone Tyler Duncan will be joined by pianists Michael Brofman and Erika Switzer.

About Brooklyn Art Song Society
   The Brooklyn Art Song Society (BASS) will enter its sixth season of first-rate music making in the Fall of 2015, having earned a reputation as one of the preeminent organizations dedicated to the vast repertoire of poetry set to music.  The New York Times called BASS "a company well worth watching" and Voce di Meche hailed, "as long as BASS is around we do not need to worry about the future of art song in the USA."  BASS's innovative programming is epic in scope yet presented in intimate settings. Past highlights have included performances of the complete songs of Charles Ives and Henri Duparc, a festival of works from Franz Schubert's last year, a five-concert survey of the songs of Les Six, and an ongoing project to present the complete lieder of Hugo Wolf. Committed to keeping art song relevant in our time BASS has collaborated closely with important living composers such as Tom Cipullo, Herschel Garfein, Daron Hagen, Libby Larsen, Lowell Liebermann, James Matheson, Scott Wheeler and Yehudi Wyner, and has commissioned works from up-an-coming composers Michael Djupstrom, Marie Incontrera and Michael Rose. In May 2015 BASS released its first album, New Voices, on Roven Records, which debuted at number one for new releases in Opera and Vocal on Amazon.com and in the top 10 on the Billboard Traditional Classical chart. The 2015-16 season includes Britannica, a six-concert celebration of British song from Dowland to Birtwistle, the conclusion of The Hugo Wolf Project, and the world-premiere of Andrew Staniland's Canadian Songbook (BASS/Casement Fund Son Series co-commission).  On top of monthly concerts in Brooklyn, BASS will travel to Kansas City, MO and Portland, ME. In the summer BASS is the Fonzaley Resident Ensemble at the Sembrich in Bolton Landing, New York and the ensemble in residence at the Lake George Music Festival.  This season features over 30 of the finest young interpreters of art song.  For more information visit www.brooklynartsongsociety.org
