Sufjan Stevens is releasing his score for the ballet The Decalogue. The album, performed by pianist Timo Andres, is out October 18 (via AKR). The Decalogue, choreographed by Justin Peck, premiered at the New York City Ballet in 2017. Peck and Sufjan Stevens have collaborated on several other ballets, including 2019's Principia.
The title of The Decalogue has a touch of the grandiose: it means "The Ten Commandments." Yet this score, composed by Sufjan Stevens for a dance work choreographed by Justin Peck that premiered with the New York City Ballet in May of 2017, is quiet and experimental. Stevens's piano score, as played and recorded by Timo Andres, sounds like etudes in the Romantic-modernist tradition, as if prompted by Debussy.
This deluxe edition of The Decalogue comprises a Stoughton Printing tip-on gatefold jacket, 180-gram vinyl, 40 page songbook, 9x12 art print by Charlotte de Mezamat, special bonus photography booklet (limited to AKR only), and download card.
