The Long Walk Home was commissioned by CASP in 2015 and premiered by baritone Geoffrey Sirett with the composer at the piano. A Winterreise for our time, Peter Tiefenbach’s A Long Walk Home sets James Ostime’s hilarious and often poignant cycle of a man’s one-night journey through the tribulations of finding love and himself in a technology-driven, chaotic world.
