Robert Ashley

Crash (2CD)

Label: Lovely Music

Format: CDx2

Genre: Compositional

Out of stock

Crash was Robert Ashley's last opera. It premiered at the Whitney Biennial weeks after his death in 2014, and presented again in 2015 at Roulette, where this recording was made. Featuring the original cast: Gelsey Bell, Amirtha Kidambi, Brian McCorkle, Paul Pinto, Dave Ruder, and Aliza Simons. Music Director: Tom Hamilton. "What I have appreciated most about previous reconceptions of Ashley's operas was the extent to which newcomers found fresh possibilities. Already in Crash, broadened horizons were evident. Ms. Bell's inquisitive 'yeah' was not Mr. Pinto's hipster aside. Mr. McCorkle's stammer was more pronounced than Ms. Kidambi's. Ms. Simons and Mr. Ruder employed distinct hues of wistfulness. If the specter of death haunted this wistful, articulate swan song, prospects of preservation and renewal were also at hand." --Steve Smith, The New York Times, April 2014
