New Carnegie Hall Commission for David Bruce

Fresh from her title role in John Adam’s The Gospel According to the Other Mary, the wonderful mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor will premiere a new work David Bruce is writing for her as part of a US tour with soprano Jessica Rivera in October 2013. The new work, provisionally titled That Time with You, is a further collaboration with Glyn Maxwell, though here in rather darker and more sombre mode, with poignant lyrics reflecting on death and loss. Bruce continues his long relationship with Carnegie Hall, who has co-commissioned this work with Kelley O’Connor.
