    Product Description

    From Out of Air is a set of six songs for soprano and piano by Damon Ferrante. These songs are based on the vividly imaginative and emotionally charged poetry of Michael Vagnetti. Each song works as a musical world unto itself and the set, as a whole, follows a narrative trajectory, whose dramatic arch moves through joy, loneliness, wonder, sorrow, transformation, and transcendence.

    The individual songs from this set are available in eBook format. See Damon Ferrante's Author Page on Amazon.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Innovative song cycle! 21 Feb 2013

    This is a beautifully illustrated score, replete with chromaticism and 21st century nuance. For those who enjoy contemporary art music, these songs will be a nice addition to their repertoire.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great set for Soprano by contemporary composer 5 Jan 2013
    By SopranoNC - Published on
    Always on the lookout for interesting American works by contemporary composers, I had heard Ferrante's Mountain and Tidewater Songs and decided to look at this cycle for Soprano and Piano. I was not disappointed.

    The texts are interesting and well set. "The Parfumerie of Residue" in particular is a joy to sing - lots of delicious words.

    This set is not for beginners; there are many meter changes and it is rhythmically challenging. This would probably sit comfortably in most soprano voices and the range tops out at high A. "From Out of Air" would make an excellent choice for a recital of contemporary or/and American composers.
