Aside from a handful of cantorial pieces, and despite his
fondness for setting vocal texts, Daniel Asia didn t begin to
explore his deep interest in Judaism and his Jewish identity
in music until 1988, with his Celebration for baritone,
chorus, brass, and organ. This work subsequently provided
material for Asia s Symphony No. 2, an evocation of Jewish
prayer, penitence, and praise. After producing another two,
purely abstract symphonies in the early 1990s, Asia turned
his attention to other genres for the next 15 years.
Then, in 2008, came his Symphony No. 5, Of Songs &
Psalms not only a return to the symphony, but also
a return to exploring facets of Jewish identity via the
symphonic medium. Asia s Fifth, while hardly as histrionic
as Bernstein s, is similarly a work of questioning and unease,
at least in part. It also gives Asia another opportunity to set
poems by the American Paul Pines, whose work has been
coupled to Asia s music many times since the 1980s. The
symphony was premiered in 2008 by the Tucson Symphony
Orchestra and Chorus, George Hanson conducting, with
soloists Kelly Anderson and Robert Swensen.
