John Pitman Review: Osvaldo Golijov on "Falling Out of Time"
All Classical Portland | Arts Blog
John interviews composer Osvaldo Golijov about the new album that features the Silkroad Ensemble. Falling Out of Time, which was written for the ensemble by longtime collaborator/composer Osvaldo Golijov, is an 80-minute tone poem based on David Grossman’s novel about parental grief and loss. In John’s interview with the composer, Mr. Golijov likened it to the dark, late works of Goya and Rembrandt. Falling Out of Time includes 13 tracks featuring 13 members of the Grammy Award-winning Silkroad Ensemble, and is a Silkroad Ensemble commissioned work.
Filled with Latin rhythms and theatrical drama, Osvaldo Golijov‘s setting of the St. Mark passion is both universally appealing and intensely personal, reflecting his own influences as an Argentinean-born Jewish composer of Russian and Romanian extraction.
