Short History of the Universe (as related by Nima Arkani-Hamed), A


by Derek Bermel

"A surprisingly playful work, from the rubbery glissandos of the opening multiverse to the songlike heart of space (imagine a Schubert-inflected Middle Eastern bluesy dirge) and the jaunty dance and hymn-like close of twistor scattering, in which A Mighty Fortress is Our God seemed to echo faintly through a slightly demented cosmos. All that freewheeling postmodernism made for an engaging, extremely enjoyable listen  an intriguing new work from a very 21st-century composer." Washington Post
