Product details

The Acrobat was commissioned especially by Gondwana Voices for performance in 2004. The text is by the American poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti (b. 1919) who is one of the members of the beat poetry movement which was particularly active in Chicago and San Francisco in the middle part of the C20th. "The Acrobat" is one of Ferlinghetti's best known works. This very athletic and virtuosic work for treble voices also tests the acrobatic skill of choristers who dare to "perform above the heads" of the audience. Doing so without the aid a safety net takes considerable courage and agility.
