Listen: George Benjamin’s ‘Written on Skin’ in its US Premiere

Posted on Nov 5, 2013

I was fortunate as an audio engineer to spend a second summer in a row at the Tanglewood Music Festival, and to work with the Tanglewood Music Center fellows, Boston Symphony Orchestra players and multiple visiting artists. One of the highlights of the contemporary music festival was Benjamin’s opera recording. I was lucky enough to work on this project with Tim Martyn and James Perella. And finally today this recording is going to go live:

On Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 8 pm, Q2 Music presents the webcast premiere of the US premiere of George Benjamin’s erotic, macabre and widely-lauded opera Written on Skin, as recorded live in concert at Tanglewood’s Festival of Contemporary Music this past August.

Listen and share! It will remain on the website for 6 months!
