Ladder to the Moon was inspired by the urban landscapes of American artist Georgia O'Keeffe, who lived and painted in Manhattan before moving to New Mexico in 1934. From 1925-30, O'Keeffe created over twenty New York paintings of newly constructed skyscrapers, such as the Radiator Building and the Shelton Hotel. Like experimental photographers of the era, O'Keeffe discovered a different reality in the form of skyscrapers, simultaneously realistic and abstract. Ladder to the Moon is a musical tribute to the art of O'Keeffe, recreating the feeling of skyscrapers and cityscapes of 1930s Manhattan. Commissioned by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Duration: ca. 20 minutes.
