Constellations

One Sheet: 

An earth-bound expression of tone connects us to a cosmic resonance of truth, beauty, and inner stillness in Constellations, the latest album by Jane Antonia Cornish. She accomplishes this transmutation through her unparalleled control of material and striking orchestration. The album’s five works present an overarching narrative that fuses them into a cohesive and musical cosmos. Scored for piano, strings, and electronics, Cornish explores the resonance and sonic individuality of the instruments with lapidary brilliance. This is music of unparalleled precision. However, the listener does not sense that anything has been withheld; quite the opposite, as a masterful balance of space and silence participates equally with tone and resonance in creating the musical alchemy that is the Cornish sound-world. 

Jane Antonia Cornish is a British Academy Award winning composer who grew up in England and lives in New York City. Her three solo albums have been met with wide acclaim, being described as “a font of wistfulness and melancholic beauty” by WQXR. Cornish collaborated with New York City Ballet principal Ask la Cour on her most recent album, Into Silence. His choreography to the title track was performed as part of the Stars of American Ballet tour in 2017 and a film of the pas de deux was released with the album. In the world of film scoring, Cornish composed the music for many films, including the drama “Fireflies in the Garden”, starring Julia Roberts, Ryan Reynolds and Willem Dafoe.
