All of the pieces try to give voice to people no longer on the planet - artists like Camille Claudel, Francis Poulenc, Wanda Landowska, Pierre Bernac, Paul Eluard - also to people lost in the 9/11 attacks - also voices to artworks by painters and sculptors no longer alive So HERE_AFTER gives a nice double play to the idea of the spiritual hereafter; that these voices are here even after the sources are gone; that we can “hear” them after they are gone. 

 "...The entire program is deeply moving. Heggie’s musical language is eclectic - a blend of classical, folk, rock, ethnic, and Broadway musical. It’s direct and accessible music that would be worth hearing even if it weren’t performed as well as it is here."

Robert A Moore - American Record Guide - March/Aprilv 2014

"... The lost voices represented are “silenced individuals whose stories deserve to be heard,” including victims and survivors of 9/11 (Pieces of 9/11: Memories from Houston). In 9/11, the duo is successful in their intention to bring forward “the hope and newness that can come from grief” through excerpts obtained through 30 hours of interviews from first responders, families and community members. Woven throughout are echoes of the “Prelude” from Bach’s Cello Suite in G Major, providing a poignant and moving undercurrent to the memories. Another of the “lost voices” is French sculptor Camille Claudel (Camille Claudel: Into the Fire) whose tumultuous relationship with Rodin and frustrated ambitions resulted in commitment to an asylum. The duo take as their inspiration six of her sculptures with each movement evoking the story that each represents. Performances by mezzo Joyce DiDonato and the Alexander String Quartet are absolutely stunning in their tender, exquisite phrasing..."
