WORLD PREMIERE— A Nation of Others

BY PAUL MORAVEC and MARK CAMPBELL
ROBERT PATERSON Whitman’s America

World premiere of A Nation of Others, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning team who created the enormously successful Sanctuary Road. A moving and dynamic score, A Nation of Others explores the experiences of immigrants—many of them also refugees—arriving at Ellis Island on a single day in 1921. Robert Paterson’s “quasi-fantasia” Whitman’s America presents six poems that praise nature and our role in it as both individuals and Americans.

“All the sonic and dramatic elements of the piece came together smoothly in a well-paced performance whose final crescendo on the word “Free” brought a tear to the eye and the audience to its feet.”

David Wright, New York Classical Review

"The first chorus, climaxing with the phrase 'Let there be light' was simply thrilling, with the singers of the Oratorio Society rising over the orchestra in a powerful surge of sound."

Paul J. Pelkonen, PaperBlog

"Throughout, conductor and OSNY musical director Kent Tritle drew virtuosity and dramatic flair from chorus and orchestra, both of which were in top form.”

Jon Sobel, BlogCritics.org

"It was a pleasure to hear the Oratorio Society’s splendid performance of Mozart’s beguiling arrangement under Mr. Tritle."

Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

"What mattered most, of course, was the fine music-making."

Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

"The chorus of nearly 200 voices sounded rich and full-bodied but never forced, and won the biggest, and deserved, ovation."

Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

"a beautifully blended, thoroughly unified sound"

Allan Kozinn, New York Times (May 22, 2008)

"the sheer energy of the society’s sound had an enveloping fervor"

Allan Kozinn, NY Times (May 22, 2008)

"As I have learned to expect from the acclaimed OSNY, choral blend was outstanding."

Edward Kliszus – The Front Row Center

"Most important, with Mr. Tritle at the helm, quality and quantity are equal."

Harry Rolnick – ConcertoNet.com
