Katia Tiutiunnik Composer / Press

“Tiutiunnik has provided an unusual setting of Eva Salzman’s poem ‘To The Enemy’. Despite using a formal exordium and recitative elements, the composer has strayed away from orthodox vocal composition by choosing the unusual accompanying sounds of percussion instruments and a surprising text rendition. This world premiere was delivered by beautifully dressed Sidonie Henbest (voice), Andrew Wiering (percussion) and Nick Parnell (percussion).”
