CD: Julia Wolfe – Cruel Sister

Ensemble Resonanz

Released on Cataloupe Music, 2011

 

Julia Wolfe’s work Cruel Sister is a 35-minute long piece for string orchestra. The graphics for this release are based on the English ballad that inspired her. In Julia Wolfe’s own words, “The tale is of two sisters – one bright as the sun, and the other cold and dark. One day, so that she can have the love of a young man who has come courting, the dark sister pushes the bright sister into the sea.”
