    "Finely wrought... a series of art songs that can just as readily evoke Robert Schumann as Paul Simon." — New York Times

    "There is no one quite like Kahane... 'The Fiction Issue' is not a record to miss." — I Care If You Listen

    "Kahane lyrically sweeps up what’s left after loss: razor sharp observation of the mundane; the crucial morning ritual of a donut and coffee; post-9/11 unease in New York City and beyond." — Q2 Music

    Comes in a lovely digipack with complete lyrics and original artwork by Sam Messer.

about

The Fiction Issue, a collaboration with the string quartet Brooklyn Rider, is Gabriel Kahane's first album of chamber music, comprising three pieces written between 2011 and 2015. The title work, featuring Shara Worden, was commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and premiered in 2012. It was revised in 2014. Bradbury Studies (2014-2015), for quartet alone, is a deconstruction of the song "Bradbury (304 Broadway)" from The Ambassador, and is dedicated to Brooklyn Rider. Finally, Come On All You Ghosts (2011), on poems by Matthew Zapruder, closes the set.
