Parables, by Robert Aldridge

Parables, by Robert Aldridge July 27, 2014

This modern oratorio by Robert Livingston Aldridge, “Parables,” uses texts from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, originally setting out with the intent to highlight similarities between the three traditions, but ending up highlighting differences as well in very striking ways. See the composer’s interview with Ronnie Reich and a piece by Minnesota Public Radio for more information, as well as this document with notes by librettist Herschel Garfein as well as the composer.
