A Song Cycle in 13 Breaths: "Breathtales" by Ann LeBaron

On November 14 Interpretations presents the world premiere of Anne LeBaron's "Breathtails," as well as a handful of other amazing works - including the New York premiere of Los Murmullos, and the US premiere of Creación de las Aves, both written for pianist Ana Cervantes.

We have posted two pieces of music from Anne LeBaron, and we asked Anne a few questions about her career and the works presented on this concert.

What is the story with your new opera "Breathtails"?

Actually it’s not an opera although everyone seems to want to call it that, so maybe it is after all! We are calling it ‘a song cycle in 13 breaths.’ When Tom Buckner invited me to compose a work for him with my choice of text (living or deceased writer, or write it myself) and instrumentation, I immediately knew that I wanted the poetry to focus on the breath, and that the shakuhachi, with its haunting breath-infused sonorities, would be central to the ensemble. What a rare opportunity---a coveted chance to collaborate in a non-operatic context (and thus dispense with all the baggage that such endeavors can sometimes entail) and to tailor the composition for a singer whom I greatly admire. The choice of string quartet, to complete the ensemble, was made intuitively—a united front that would function alternatively and at times simultaneously as a foundation, a foil, and a Greek chorus.
