Reckoning of the Abyss is a work for solo viola da gamba and chamber orchestra exploring memories held in the ocean. Surface waters, that once swelled under ancient pirate ship battles, connect with deep waters. In the high pressure darkness near the sea floor, how does the ocean reshape and revisit past experiences, and what will resurface?
The World Premier of Reckoning of the Abyss on Oct 26 was a great success. Viola da gamba can indeed be a soloist with a chamber orchestra! Stay tuned for a recording of the event. The rest of the varied concert was also a delight. Much gratitude to Longwood Strings for taking on this unusual project!
