Frank Brickle on Furious Artisans



Fiscal Year:2012


Composer:Frank Brickle

Performer:Cygnus Ensemble 

Label:Furious Artisans

Brickle seduces listeners with luscious harmonies and a deft melodic sense. A master of vocal writing, he elicits a multitude of sharply etched vocal personae from his two singers, Haleh Abghari and Elizabeth Farnum. In The Creation, Abghari, as God, lovingly sings of the creation’s bounty of forms,day by day, culminating on the 4th and 5th days with a deeply moving kind of bluesey American weltschmertz.
