Consortio, the revolutionary marketplace that connects composers’ consortium ideas and ensembles who make them a reality, focuses on an upcoming project every week. This week’s spotlight is on Ally Rose Czyzewicz’s “Cień,” or “Shadow,” which will be for SATB chorus.
According to Ally, the upcoming work will be “a piece about connecting with one another, taking time to appreciate love ,and the many ways it manifests itself in our lives.
The Polish text will be interwoven with the English translation throughout the piece and melodic lines will be shared between each voice. The piece will begin softly and build in intensity as each part is yearning to love; to become as close as ones shadow. I will use rhythmic repetition as the lyrics change from Polish to English to sustain the energy and intrigue throughout. The piece will end with a feeling of unity.”
Consortio believes in helping emerging, promising composers like Ally grow their networks. Get to know Ally through her Consortio profile and help support her new music. The deadline to be a part of the premiere window is August 1st.
Consortio is making commissioning easier, more accessible, and more impactful for all involved. Most of the consortium projects on Consortio cost only a fraction more than the purchase of a set of octavos, so a new music experience is available to nearly everyone.
