Sufjan Stevens & Timo Andres - The Decalogue (Deluxe Edition) LP

Asthmatic Kitty

The title of The Decalogue has a touch of the grandiose: it means "The Ten Commandments." Yet this score, composed by Sufjan Stevens for a dance work choreographed by Justin Peck that premiered with the New York City Ballet in May of 2017, is quiet and experimental. Stevens's piano score, as played and recorded by Timo Andres, sounds like etudes in the Romantic-modernist tradition, as if prompted by Debussy. With The Decalogue, now on vinyl LP, Sufjan is making – gently, without ostentation – new departures. This deluxe edition of The Decalogue comprise a 180-gram vinyl LP, Stoughton tip-on gatefold jacket, 40 page songbook, 9 x 12 art print and download card.
