Game of Attrition CD

Game of Attrition: Arlene Sierra, Vol. 2, is Sierra's orchestral portrait disc, released by Bridge Records to international critical acclaim.

Arlene Sierra's role as Composer-in-Association with the Utah Symphony has been announced for the 2021-2022 season. 

Broadway World writes, "Composer-in-Association Arlene Sierra has been recognized by The New York Times for her "vividly scored, colorful works," three of which are performed by the Utah Symphony this season. Her 2001 mysterious and evocative orchestral showpiece "Aquilo" receives its U.S. premiere under the baton of Shiyeon Sung. Premiered by Susanna Mälkki and the Tokyo Philharmonic, "Aquilo" takes its name from a classical Roman term for the Northeast wind and is a musical interpretation of the wind and its elemental interactions. Sierra's "Nature Symphony," a joint commission of the BBC Philharmonic and BBC Radio 3, receives its U.S. premiere in April. The Guardian wrote that the work "nods to everything from bees to the dark landscapes of Georgia O'Keeffe" and that "the symphony does what Sierra sets out to do with impressive economy and a succession of striking orchestral ideas." Also in April, Thierry Fischer conducts the world premiere of Sierra's Utah Symphony-commissioned "Bird Symphony." Sierra's planned community involvement activities in Salt Lake City as Composer-in-Association range from talks and workshops to performances of her music. She engages with residents of all ages, from elementary school students to high school composers to adults who are interested in the arts."
