BROUWER, M.: Chamber Music - Shattered Glass / Lonely Lake / Clarinet Quintet (Shattered) (Blue Streak Ensemble, Maia String Quartet)

Widely acclaimed for its lyricism, emotional power, striking musical imagery and fascinating sonorities, Margaret Brouwer’s work has earned her numerous awards and a constant demand for new commissions. Shattered Glass is a musical kaleidoscope, expressing Brouwer’s anger and frustration with American aggression abroad. The Quintet also responds to world affairs and the 9/11 attack, asking if cultures can exist together by layering contemporary complexity with Middle Eastern influences. Whom do you call angel now? is a stark setting of David Adam’s post-9/11 poem An Angel’s Song. Hope for the future can be heard in Lonely Lake, while Brouwer’s arrangements introduce new instrumental colors to masterworks from the past. Brouwer’s orchestral works Aurolucent Circles, Mandala and Sizzle can be found on Naxos 8.559250.
