Seattle Modern Orchestra & Kate Soper says
For its season finale, Seattle Modern Orchestra presents two works for soprano and ensemble by American composer/vocalist and Guggenheim fellow Kate Soper, including a world premiere of a new ensemble version of her 2012 piece, "Now is forever: I. Orpheus and Eurydice," with text by Jorie Graham, written specifically for SMO. "Door" (2007) for soprano, flute, saxophone, electric guitar and accordion with text written by Martha Collins exudes a wide emotional range from buoyant and playful to dark and moody. The finale concert will also include two Seattle premieres: Italian composer Fausto Romitelli's "Blood on the floor, Painting 1986" (2000) and Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas’s "Monodie" for 18 instruments.
