Eric Nathans The Space Of A Door frames a body of work that spans eight years (2008-2016), from Nathans student days to the present, and exemplifies BMOPs commitment to championing the works of young composers.
Often inspired by engaging with old places such as historic churches, cathedrals, or concert halls, Nathans creative energy was sparked for the eponymous The Space Of A Door by the Providence Athenaeum, built in 1836.
Omaggio A Gesualdo muses on a 16th-century madrigal, while Missing Words I is the first in a series of works drawing on a humorous book of made-up German words. Icarus Dreamt draws on the Greek mythological figure, and Paestum was inspired by an ancient Greek city in Italy that Nathan encountered during his time at the American Academy in Rome.
