Nico Muhly: 'The Street'
Parker Ramsay, harp
Rosie Hilal, narrator
The Choral Scholars of the Choir of King's College, Cambridge
‘The Street’ is a major new work by Nico Muhly inspired by the iconography and story of Christ’s crucifixion as depicted in the 14 Stations of the Cross. Commissioned by King's College, the work is interwoven with plainchant and meditations by Alice Goodman.
Parker Ramsay, a former organ scholar of King’s College, has forged a career as a solo harpist and performs the world premiere of this new work from Muhly with the Choral Scholars of King's College. He is joined by acclaimed actress Rosie Hilal, who reads the meditations by Alice Goodman, the famed librettist for John Adams’ operas Nixon in China and The Death of Klinghoffer.
