Ingram Marshall is an iconic American composer who “creates his own musical landscapes — mists, mysterious places that afford moments of strange lucidity.” (Justin Davidson) Marshall celebrates his 75th birthday this month and in honor of this, host Robert McBride will play Kingdom Come, performed by The American Composers Orchestra, Hymnotic Delays, sung by Theatre of Voices, and Fog Tropes II, played by the Kronos Quartet.
Much of [his] music has a quality of timeless lament, of inconsolable sorrow. Tenderly human in expression yet superhuman in scale, it seems to contemplate our condition from a very great height. – Adam Shatz
