LYRIC PIECES is a collection of music by Edvard Grieg with lyrics and vocalese by Sarah Silverman. In this new work, Silverman delves deep into the emotional center of each piece by experimenting with form, improvisation and vocal looping. She uses her voice to present melody and harmony in new ways, and her words to evoke meditations on love, motherhood and home. A song selection from LYRIC PIECES was on Silverman’s first album, SARAH, and the full song cycle was premiered in a live performance at the Pico Playhouse in Los Angeles.
I am very excited to see where she is going with her music and her abundant talent."
