Night of the Flying Horses (2002): Reviews

Upshaw's first Golijov song, "Night of the Flying Horses," was a lullaby originally written for the 2000 Sally Potter film "The Man Who Cried" to Potter's original poem. The verse was translated into Yiddish and accompanied by pizzicato violins and the bent melodies of a klezmer clarinet. After riveting performances like this, if I were Upshaw's child, bedtime would last forever. I'd never sleep, begging for just one more lullaby.

—Frederick Kaimann, The New Jersey Star-Ledger
