SKU FH12-NBH 901
"Trillium E is the first-ever studio recording of an Anthony Braxton opera. The deluxe four-disc set documents this surreal and witty installment in Braxton's ongoing Trillium cycle, and includes a booklet with libretto, photos, and critical essays. Each of Trillium E’s four acts features a different episode: a genie in a bottle, the invention of human cloning, interplanetary space travel, and the exploration of a jungle pyramid. The performers' credits range from major opera companies (New York City Opera, Florentine Opera, Lyric Opera of San Diego); top avant-garde performance groups (Philip Glass Ensemble, Wooster Group, Damstadt Institute); grassroots arts collectives (HERE Theater, Anti-Social Music); and collaborations with legendary jazz and improvised music figures. Although written more than 10 years ago, Trillium E was finally recorded in 2010. A cast of 12 vocalists, 12 solo instrumentalists and a 40-piece orchestra was assembled for this session; this cast forms the core of Braxton's new opera company, and will continue to record, tour and premiere his operatic works in the United States and abroad."
