  • Ensemble
    Juilliard Orchestra
    Gary Lakes (Tenor)
    Gerard Schwarz
    New World Records:
…a finely crafted work that is lucidly organized, highly dramatic and provides gratifying opportunities for instruments and singer alike.
Ellen Pfeifer, The Boston Herald,01/01/0001
Albert’s music amplifies the text, as it alternates between shimmering details and stark intensity. The composer knows the orchestra and knows how to write for it. He is master at color, at illuminating an idea or a feeling through timbre: the whispering, terrifying glissando at the beginning of the cycle, the emphatic solo trumpet over strings, the insistent piano, the soft, yielding quality of violins, violas and cellos. …it is an important addition to the music of our time.
R.M. Campbell, Seattle Post-Intelligencer,01/01/0001
