Written for the 30th anniversary of Boston Musica Viva (1998), Ad Parnassum is a single-movement construct of murky, mysterious tone. Stucky slowly builds his material in tension, layering motifs and falling back, building and falling back, until finally reaching a hammering crescendo, then quietly fading back into the ether. For advanced performers.
