This evening-length work by one of Canada's most esteemed young composers features settings of the strange, beautiful and brutally honest poetry of Robin Richardson. Mr. Staniland's music has been called "alternately beautiful and terrifying" by the New Yorker and Ms. Richardson's has been praised as "one of the best young poets of her generation". Esteemed Canadian singers Martha Guth and baritone Tyler Duncan will be joined by pianists Michael Brofman and Erika Switzer.
