Jessica Rivera: Telling a Different Story

Soprano Jessica Rivera's March 29 concert at Carnegie Hall—with pianist Molly Morkoski and Ensemble Meme—includes the world premiere of Mark Grey's Ātash Sorushān (Fire Angels). The piece was commissioned by Carnegie Hall in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The theater artist and writer Niloufar Talebi, who is of Iranian ancestry, has collaborated with the Grey to produce a work of extraordinary power and gravity.

Here, Rivera explains the genesis of the piece and how she and the composer wished to incorporate the themes of love and remembrance of 9/11 to tell "a different story to the ones we've heard so many times in the past."
