Title: Fools & Angels
Label: Panoramic

Dmitri Tymoczko's "Fools and Angels" includes four works for voices and ensemble that demonstrate a wide range of approaches to vocal writing and genre. Reminiscent of the ambitious music of progressive rock bands in the 1970s, Tymoczko borrows and imports stylistic elements at will to serve a larger aesthetic vision that is unbounded by category. The album features performances by Newspeak, Illinois Modern Ensemble, Collide Trio, and several active members of the New York new music community. Dmitri Tymoczko was born in 1969 in Northampton, Massachusetts. He studied music and philosophy at Harvard University, and philosophy at Oxford University. He received his Ph.D in music composition from the University of California, Berkeley. He is currently a Professor of Music at Princeton, where he has taught composition and theory since 2002. He lives in Philadelphia with his wife, Elisabeth Camp, who teaches philosophy at Rutgers University, their son Lukas, who was born in 2008, and their daughter Katya, born 2012.
