Violent, Violent Sea | January 19th, 2020

Described by Time Out as “Brooklyn’s post-millennial Mozart”, Missy Mazzoli is one of the more consistently inventive and surprising composers on the scene today.  Completed in 2005, Mazzoli’s In Spite of All This describes the vulnerability, anger, compassion and optimism of a time in history that left many people feeling powerless and overwhelmed. With Violent, Violent Sea, she changes direction with a work of undeniable optimism that literally bursts at its seams – loud and intense, yet still filled with soaring melodies and lush harmony.
