Joe Hill : 16 actions : for orchestra, voices, and soloist by Wayne Horvitz( Recording )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps the best way to characterize Wayne Horvitz's Joe Hill: 16 Actions for Orchestra, Voices, and Soloist (2004) -- based on the life and times of the legendary labor activist and organizer -- is as a radio play that tells the story of a man's life in words, instrumental music and songs. Like a song cycle, Joe Hill incorporates much previously-written material (nearly all of it re-harmonized). There are songs by Hill himself, such as "The Rebel Girl" and "There is Power in the Union," but also by others, including the folk poem "The Lumberjack's Prayer," Mississippi John Hurt's "Spike Driver's Blues," and an old English street cry, "Chairs to Mend." It also employs spoken word, including Joe Hill's famous "Last Will and Testament," plus words used as narration and dramatic dialogue. But "song cycles" don't usually include ravishingly beautiful stretches of chamber music, much less a completely open line in the score for an improvising guitarist-in this case, the most influential one of our time, Bill Frisell. Horvitz has chosen to tell Hill's story in music that is both complex and direct, ironic and sentimental, dissonant and gorgeous, popular and artful, and that relishes a well-wrought song as much as long-form development."--Publisher
