I’m pleased to join the chorus of announcements for Sufjan Stevens’s The Decalogue. Written as a ballet score for Justin Peck, The Decalogue is an austere solo-piano counterpart to the elaborate orchestrations for Principia I worked on last year. Structured in ten movements, each a takeoff on one of the ten commandments, the music is by turns pithy and meditative, never grandiose. I had a great deal of fun interpreting it.
I recorded the album at Oktaven Audio with the wonderful Ryan Streber at the controls and Sufjan producing. Perhaps most excitingly, you can preorder the deluxe vinyl edition which includes sheet music (which I engraved in Dorico, naturally).
