Afterglow is the third panel of an orchestral tryptique commissioned from Scime by Esprit. In composing Sustain, Norman, America’s most celebrated young composer, considered how audiences one hundred years from now might perceive and be affected by orchestral music. He then set out in a major new creative direction to produce what some have labeled a masterpiece. With inexorable force, Evangelista’s piece draws listeners in and excites heartbeats in the same way his score affects the orchestra’s playing.
