How with this rage shall beauty hold a plea… —Shakespeare, Sonnet 65
“Rain Sequence”, pianos, Aberfan — it has just started to rain. In this sample, as single pianos enter one after the other, you hear the gradual dissolution of harmony.
Laura Siersema is composer of Aberfan (7 pianos, voice and tools of rescue), a sponsored project of New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt organization. All donations are tax deductible. Your contribution ensures we can return to the studio to complete its recording.
