Detail

Description

Commissioned by the Koussevitzky Foundation for Fred Cohen and Currents, with soprano Christine Schadeberg

“Schadeberg
sang Froom’s eloquent, interesting ‘Emerson Songs.’ . . . Her singing of the
last line . . . was certainly powerful enough to convey the rapt vision of love
the words expressed.  But the
instrumental conclusion took the intensity that much further up the scale.” (William
Glackin, The Sacramento Bee)
