SW's Gavin Borchert reviews Osvaldo Golijov's Oceana When: 2:45 to 2:55 p.m. Where:KUOW, 94.9 In Brief, Gavin Says:
Three works from one of the most acclaimed and widely popular American composers of our day. The energetic Latin-flavored cantata Oceana, on poems by Pablo Neruda, was commissioned in 1996 for the Oregon Bach Festival. Tenebrae for string quartet is an elegiac reimagining of Couperin’s choral Lecons tenebres. The Three Songs were written for Dawn Upshaw, and include the Emily Dickinson setting "How Slow the Wind."
