Muhly Nico Ballet Score I Air Before Me Decca Classics

NICO MUHLY

I Drink The Air Before Me

The ballet score I Drink the Air I Breathe was written for the Stephen Petronio Dance Company’s 25th anniversary

The ballet got excellent reviews in the press:

“…the score, by Nico Muhly, evokes turbulent undercurrents in which the frantic sounds of flute and strings are woven with the more tumultuous notes of a trombone and piano. Without being literal, the music and choreography create a sonic, ephemeral wave.” – New York Times

“I went in part for Petronio but even more for the commissioned, hour-plus-long score by Nico Muhly, a composer whose work I like to follow. This consisted of a chamber group on a platform at the rear, audience right, and Muhly himself at a grand piano lower left, playing and cueing. At the beginning and end there was a children's choir with hand bells. […] The instrumental score was interesting as a departure from Muhly's usually more lyrical, consonant style. The writing was ingenious and troubled, maybe a warmup for more ambitious orchestral scores. What made it work was the way Muhly had absorbed Petronio's nervous, insistent choreography and echoed and extended it in his music. Well worth the watch and, even more, the listen.” – John Rockwell, ArtsJournal.com
