Gordon Beeferman You, the Weather, a Wolf -  set to texts by Laurie Stone (Commissioned by St Urban.)
Johannes Brahms Neue Liebeslieder Waltzes, Op. 65
In their new collaboration, Gordon Beeferman and Laurie Stone play with the notion of romance that fueled Brahms’ Neue Liebeslieder Waltzes.
Brahms composed within the framework of high romantic idealism. But Beeferman and Stone are creatures of their moment’s mongrel intensities and comic ambiguities. Beeferman riffs on Stone’s story fragments and themes of sudden reversal, wonder, lust, friendship, and the mysteries of unlikely desire. Together they create a work that is abstract and lyrical, arousing and tender.
