Inventory by Brian Current
Sunday, July 25, 2010
Brian Current's Inventory is a whimsical work in which a young woman daydreams during her shift at a shoe store. In a stream of consciousness, the woman recalls and lists various shoe names and sizes. Mr. Current's capricious score employs many tremelandi and trills, creating a fantastical and light-hearted sound world. The cast includes lyric soprano Lisa Vroman, and the libretto is by Anton Piatigorsky.
