Ensemble Resonanz Releases ‘Tenebre’ From New Album
The 15-minute orchestral work, which is one of four pieces on the album, features the vocals of the exceptionally talented Moses Sumney, and offers listeners a deeply spiritual and ethereal experience. You can listen to “Tenebre” here.
And to find out more about Dessner’s work as a composer and his collaboration and recording session with the fantastic Ensemble Resonanz, watch their new video below!
Speaking of the collaboration, Dessner said: “When I first heard Ensemble Resonanz perform my music, it felt right to make a recording with them. To be honest, the energy and precision of the group was somewhat shocking. It‘s like there‘s a fierceness to the sound, while retaining its depth”.
The new album features previous compositions by Dessner reworked specifically for the ensemble: “Tenebre” and “Aheym” were originally composed for the Kronos Quartet for Dessner’s album “Aheym”; “Skrik” was co-commissioned by Steve Reich and Carnegie Hall in 2017; and “Lachrimae” previously featured on Dessner’s album “St. Carolyn by the Sea”.
