The National’s Bryce Dessner Makes Recorded Debut As Composer With “Aheym”
Performed by the Kronos Quartet
The National's Bryce Dessner has announced that he will be recorded debut as a composer with a new EP Aheym. Coming out Nov. 5 on Anti-, the collection of work features four original compositions by Dessner performed by the Grammy Award-winning ensemble the Kronos Quartet. Dessner and the quartet first crossed paths when Kronos founder David harrington approached Dessner about writing a piece for the foursome's performance at the Celebrate Brooklyn! festival in Prospect Park in 2009. The resulting piece "Aheym," which means "homeward" in Yiddish, was inspired by the stories of Dessner's Jewish immigrant grandparents who settled near the park. Down below you'll find the full tracklist for the EP.
