3 November 2018 | Anthracite Fields

anthracite_fields_1

“[Anthracite Fields] captures not only the sadness of hard lives lost… but also the sweetness and passion of a way of daily life now also lost. The music compels without overstatement. This is a major, profound work.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times.

Haunting, poignant and relentlessly physical, Julia Wolfe’s Anthracite Fields is an oratorio about coal miners and a fitting recipient of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Music. Inspired by miners living in the Pennsylvania coal region, Wolfe uses oral histories, interviews with miners and their families, speeches, children’s rhymes, and other sources to create a powerful cantata that speaks of the American worker’s experience.
