The Resinosa Ensemble
Selection of work by Maine composers Daniel Sonenberg, John Newell, Nancy Gunn and Richard Nelson.
The Resinosa Ensemble is a chamber trio formed in 2016 featuring Joëlle Morris, mezzo-Soprano; Bridget Convey, piano; and Eliza Meyer, cello. This ensemble came together out of a love for performing chamber music, working with living composers, and offering music slightly off the beaten path. Made in Maine: Reflections in Song, a recital specially curated for an online format, features carefully chosen songs from Resinosa’s commissioned premieres: selections from Daniel Sonenberg’s six song cycle Beauty is Not Enough, with text by Edna St. Vincent Millay; selections from John Newell’s Night Songs with poems by Sara Teasdale; the final movement of Nancy Gunn’s Spiresongs, poems by Elizabeth Spires; and selections from Richard Nelson’s A Forest of Glass, a Kaleidoscope, a Dream, featuring poems by Ellen Taylor.
