 Susie, tell me a story!

Susie juggles with seven distinctive musical episodes. Seven headstrong composers wrote one each, always loaded with emphatic drama, and each for a different recorder: the beginning, the call, the success, the nightmare, the happiness, the destruction, the confusion. From these seven story elements, Susie creates a comedy, a tragedy or a quest. She can have the hero tame a monster or make a poor man rich. Or she relates the story of a difficult quest, a happy return, a liberating rebirth. These are the scenarios with a happy ending, but Susie makes her own choices, each time choosing her own path.

Susie, tell me a story! is about seven composers writing a musical story for recorders and electronics. Susanna Borsch, assisted by musical liaison David Dramm, weaves together these seven compositions into an exciting narrative. Call it a theatrical concert. Call it a musical adventure. Call it the most exciting quest for a bundle of recorders ever.
