The New York Philharmonic releases the live recording of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe's oratorio Fire in my mouth, an elegy to the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire conducted by the commanding (New York Times) Jaap van Zweden. Premiered as part of New York Stories: Threads of Our City, the Philharmonic s two-week examination of New York City s roots as a city of immigrants, Fire in my mouth is a reflection on the New York garment industry at the turn of the 20th century through a focus on the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, which killed 146 garment workers, most of them young immigrants. Called a monumental achievement in high musical drama (The Nation), Fire in my mouth is the latest recording in the New York Philharmonic s partnership with Decca Gold.
