Chesky, David – “Agnostic, The” – [Chesky Records, Inc.]
David Chesky’s The Agnostic (1997) performed by the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra & Choir with Alto, Bass, and Boy Alto soloists. Recorded March 2000 in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Sacrilegious music. Libretto inspired by Beckett, Camus, Nietszche & others. An Agnostic believes things are essentially unknowable and that human knowledge is limited to experience. “My name is Todd and I am dead / … I’m but a child / … I question this God.” Lots of dynamic range in the recording.
