New Album: Julia Wolfe’s Fire in my mouth

The World Premiere in January of Julia Wolfe’s Fire in my mouth, a searingly vivid evocation of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, perfectly capped New York Stories: Threads of Our City, our exploration of New York’s roots as a city of immigrants.

We are delighted to announce that the recording of these performances by the New York Philharmonic and Music Director Jaap van Zweden will be released in digital format on August 30, 2019, and in physical formats on October 4, 2019, on Decca Gold. Preorder it now.

Fire in my mouth, which the Orchestra co-commissioned, also featured The Crossing, conducted by Donald Nally, and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, directed by Francisco J. Núñez. The New York Times called the work “ambitious, heartfelt, often compelling. … There is both heady optimism and a sense of dread in Ms. Wolfe’s music. … Mr. van Zweden led a commanding account of a score that … ends with an elegiac final chorus in which the names of all 146 victims are tenderly sung to create a fabric of music and memory.” The performance earned the coveted spot in the highbrow / brilliant quadrant of New York magazine’s Approval Matrix.
