Bienen School Premieres "The Last Message Received"
THE LAST MESSAGE RECEIVED is inspired by the blog of the same name. In 2014, 16-year-old Emily Trunko created a space for people to anonymously share their final communications with loved ones. Thousands of posts later, composer Christopher Cerrone and librettist Stephanie Fleischmann collaborate to create a sometimes dramatic, sometimes intimate, and sometimes joyous tapestry of these plaintive communications. This commissioned world premiere is answered with one of the great Requiems of the 20th century, that of Maurice Duruflé, in his version for full orchestra.
