Fire in my mouth

Regular price $20.00

Tax included.

The New York Philharmonic and Music Director Jaap van Zweden’s World Premiere performance of Julia Wolfe’s Fire in my mouth was released in fall 2019 by Decca Gold, Universal Music Group’s newly established US classical music label.

The New York Philharmonic premiered Julia Wolfe’s Fire in my mouth in January 2019, conducted by Jaap van Zweden and featuring The Crossing, conducted by Donald Nally, and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, directed by Francisco J. Núñez. The work is a reflection on the New York garment industry at the turn of the 20th century through a focus on the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, which killed 146 garment workers, most of them young immigrants. The New York Times called the work “ambitious” and “heartfelt,” and the performance earned the coveted highbrow / brilliant spot in New York magazine’s Approval Matrix.
