Luce (2001): Reviews
   [Texts] · [Reviews]
..."Luce" took an entirely different path. Mr. Golijov's latest composition (and a world premiere), the piece is a setting of a fragment of a 1983 interview in which the director Federico Fellini are an extraordinarily poetic and comprehensive answer to the question "What is light for you?"

Mr. Golijov's setting is as free-ranging as Mr. Fellini's definition, sometimes ruminative, often intensely dramatic. One brief frenzied section of the work taxed the upper reaches of Ms. Kim's range, but for the most part she sang it with a measure of nuance and character that suited both Mr. Fellini's comments and Mr. Golijov's music.

—Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
