about

Broad gestures, rich textures and narrative sweep are vivid signatures of Alex Weiser’s music. Born and raised in New York City, Weiser composes cosmopolitan music that merges a deeply felt historical perspective with a vibrant, forward-looking creative pulse. An energetic advocate for contemporary classical music and for the work of his peers, Weiser co-founded and directs Kettle Corn New Music, and is Director of Public Programs at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.

Meditative and devotional in scope, and all the days were purple sets Yiddish and English poems to music in a song cycle that seeks out the divine while reflecting on the longing, beauty and tumult of life. The album includes texts by Anna Margolin, Edward Hirsch, Rachel Korn, and Abraham Sutzkever, and performances by Eliza Bagg (voice), Lee Dionne (piano), Maya Bennardo (violin), Hannah Levinson (viola), Hannah Collins (cello) and Mike Compitello (percussion).

The recording also includes Three Epitaphs, composed in 2016 and featuring excerpts from texts on love and life’s transience by Williams Carlos Williams, Seikilos and Emily Dickinson.
