Davóne Tines, bass baritone; Recital No. 1: Mass

 
 
 
 
 
Jan 25, 2022
DACAMERA / Zilkha Hall

Music of J. S. Bach; Julius Eastman, Margaret Bond and Caroline Shaw; spirituals arranged by Tyshawn Sorey, Moses Hogan and Davóne Tines

Heralded as a "singer of immense power and fervor" (Los Angeles Times), the incredibly gifted American bass-baritone Davóne Tines has also established himself as a creative artist of originality, presenting here a highly unusual recital in the form of a mass. In what The New York Times calls “a model of adventurousness and a personal exploration,” Tines brings together works of J.S. Bach; spirituals arranged by Tyshawn Sorey, Moses Hogan and Tines himself; rarely heard songs of Julius Eastman and Margaret Bonds; and a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw.

“charismatic, full-voiced bass-baritone” -- The New York Times
