Category: MN COMPOSERS
Composer: Jake Runestad
Voicing: SATB divisi
Setting: with strings or piano accompaniment
If you haven’t yet spent time with Runestad’s Grammy-nominated Hope of Loving album, beautifully recorded by Conspirare, please stop reading this and do that first. Wild Forces, included on that album, is now available as a stand-alone work, with piano accompaniment, if you don’t have an incredible string quartet handy. Energetic, accessible, only 2 minutes long—a brief tour de force that would make a dazzling concert opening.
