Falling, a Barlow Endowment commission written for the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble and soprano Lindsay Kesselman, is based on the James Dickey poem of the same name that traces a flight attendant’s fall from an airplane (based on an actual New York Times article) and kaleidoscopically details her intense psychological and physical journey to the ground.
