This is Maestro Kinney Frost's latest recording: Pulitzer Prize winning composer David Lang's, the difficulty of crossing a field.
Hailed as the 'Critic's Choice' in the November 2015 OPERA NEWS:
"Conductor Douglas Kinney Frost shows
mastery of the rhythmically complex proceedings."
Based on a one-page story by Ambrose Bierce, the difficulty of crossing a field is a joint collaboration in musical theater between composer David Lang and playwright Mac Wellman that recounts, in the words of a recent New York Times performance review, “a strange disappearance and what the neighbors have to say about it.”
