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)
