Basket Rondo / Jukebox in the Tavern of Love

Two extended works commissioned and performed by The Western Wind:

Basket Rondo: Meredith’s Monk’s wordless weave of voices creating a colorful, poetic, fabric of sound.

Jukebox in the Tavern of Love: “Eric Salzman has written a marvelous piece for vocal ensemble (libretto by Valeria Vasilevski) that tells the story of six odd people who meet in a bar when the lights go out in a terrible storm: a Hollywood dancer, a sexy nun, an orthodox rabbi … provoking dialogues on love and loneliness that could have been written by Ionesco.” —Bernat Dedeu
