Aperio opens its 13th season with the southwest premiere of Douglas J. Cuomo's Savage Winter, a fiercely contemporary reimagining of Wilhelm Müller’s poetry cycle, Winterreise, most famously set by Schubert. In this bold new work, Cuomo transforms Müller’s lovelorn winter wanderer into a demon-haunted Everyman. Tenor Tony Boutté assumes the existential mantle, giving a searing, intense performance as a man desperate for atonement, while electric guitar, trumpet, keyboards, and electronics - infused with acid jazz and a punk energy - narrate his delirious fever dream.
