A huge shoutout of thanks to Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra for a beautiful performance of the world premiere of Breathe, Come Together, Embrace to kick off their 2022-23 season. If you missed the performance or would like to hear the piece again, tune into Seattle Symphony Live to stream the recording until October 1, 2022.
Melinda Bargreen of the Seattle Times writes: “Saturday night’s opener was a world premiere by the orchestra’s 2022-23 artist in residence Angelique Poteat: “Breathe, Come Together, Embrace.” Poteat’s new work in three contiguous sections is extremely accomplished and vividly picturesque, with a wide palette of tonal colors and lots of contrasts — all artfully unveiled by Morlot and the orchestra in a subtle, vital premiere.”
