For it's 2007-08 season finale, Fireworks Ensemble presents two major new commissioned works by two of America's most important Neo-Romantic voices: Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Del Tredici and west coast master symphonist Robert Kyr. Pushing the boundaries of the composers' tonal, expressive styles into fresh territory, the large-scale commissioned works: Del Tredici's A Field Manual: Poetry of Edward Field, and Kyr's Working Fire/Fireworks Variations create a startling synthesis of lush romantic tonality and gritty, rock-influenced vitality.
Adam Silverman: Spark in the Shoe
Robert Kyr: Working Fire/Fireworks Variations
David Del Tredici: A Field Manual (Poems of Edward Field)
