Series: LKM Music Publisher: Edward B. Marks Music Company Format: Softcover Composer: Kenneth Fuchs
FALLING MAN for baritone and orchestra are based on Don DeLillo's 2007 novel about the events, aftermath, and changed lives of 9/11,a book which enthralled Kenneth Fuchs. DeLillo's unflinching description of raw terror and absolute chaos provided a standpoint from which Fuchs could begin to come to terms as a composer with the shocking and world-changing events of that fateful morning. The work is cast in the form of a dramatic scena for baritone voice and orchestra, and the principal melodic and harmonic elements are organized around a falling twelve-tone theme. Recorded by JoAnn Falletta and the London Symphony Orchestra with baritone Roderick Williams at Abbey Road Studio, Naxos CD Falling Man 8.559753. “This is a wonderfully recorded disc that should continue to gain Fuchs the notoriety he so deserves.” --Steven Bergman, Edge A chamber version for baritone and mixed octet, arranged by David Krane, is also available from the publisher.
