Description: From the composer: Many years ago in Sarajevo, I had directed a youth sympho-rock choir. Director and chorus fell in love, but the civil war in Yugoslavia took the project away. "Back to the Heart-Planet" heals this part of my history by referencing the thematic material from that time, bringing it full circle, and exploding into a journey of a loss of innocence and a fuller heart regained.
The piece was commissioned as part of my Alan and Wendy Pesky Artist-in-Residence at Lafayette College (2011-2012). This excerpt features the Lafayette College Concert Choir with Greg Eicher on electric bass, Gary Rissmiller on drum set, and myself on synthesizers. Jennifer Kelly conducted.
