About

Widely acclaimed for its lyricism, emotional power, striking musical imagery and fascinating sonorities, Margaret Brouwerís work has earned her numerous awards and a constant demand for new commissions.

Shattered Glass is a musical kaleidoscope, expressing Brouwerís 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 Adamís post-9/11 poem 'An Angelís Song'. Hope for the future can be heard in Lonely Lake, while Brouwerís arrangements introduce new instrumental colours to masterworks from the past.
