Premiere of Avshalomov “Nigun Prophecy”
World Premiere of NIGUN PROPHECY, concert band with singers. Here is the video of the premiere, which the composer conducted last week at St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. The piece is based on 3 traditional Jewish nigunim (wordless syllable-songs), each introduced by singers (band members and some extras), and then varied to make an arc, with an epic ending.
A nice opportunity for band/choir collaboration. Enjoy!
