A chamber cantata by Kati Agócs for "forward-looking expert ensemble" Third Sound (The New Yorker) and Lucy Dhegrae.
Third Sound seeks to commission a new work for voice and ensemble from composer Kati Agócs, whose work The Boston Globe has described as “music of fluidity and austere beauty.” The new work will mark a collaboration with mezzo-soprano Lucy Dhegrae, praised for her “dramatic volatility and cool command,” “alluring sound and narrative urgency” (New York Times). The new work is a chamber cantata in seven uninterrupted movements. Agócs’s conception of the work was prompted in part by The Processing Series, Lucy Dhegrae’s artist residency at National Sawdust exploring how music can address the aftermath of trauma.
