San Francisco Choral Artists perform Rekviem June 13, 19, 20 in California Bay Area


San Francisco Choral Artists are marking their 25th anniversary season with three concerts, featuring 25 works by 25 composers, directed by Magen Solomon. The program includes my Rekviem, a setting in Russian of a short but beautiful and moving text by Anna Akhmatova.

You can read Ken Bullock’s preview of the program in San Francisco Classical Voice, which describes my piece as “a beautiful requiem — dark, almost threatening.”
