Myths & Hymns

Componist: Adam Guettel
Schrijver: Adam Guettel

Adam Guettel burst to the forefront of acclaimed young theater composers with the award-winning musical, FLOYD COLLINS. ‘A phenomenal talent,’ proclaimed The New York Times. In his song cycle, MYTHS & HYMNS, Guettel paints an emotional landscape of faith and yearning that embraces a boundless spectrum of ideology and spirituality. The lyrics were inspired by Greek mythology and a 19th Century Presbyterian hymnal; the musical vocabulary sweeps from romantic art song and rock to Latin, gospel and R&B. MYTHS & HYMNS elucidates our fantastic desire to transcend earthly bounds, our intrinsic need to connect with something or someone greater in our restless search for enlightenment. (Available for performance with piano only.)
