Composed by David Lang, love fail is a meditation on the timelessness of love that weaves together details from the story of Tristan and Isolde with more modern sources. The recording also spotlights the singular and magical sound of the vocal quartet Anonymous 4, whose longstanding commitment to medieval music and historical scholarship has been acclaimed worldwide. The music and libretto pull together narratives of love from such sources as Lydia Davis, Marie de France, Gottfried von Strassburg, Béroul, Thomas of Britain and Richard Wagner. love fail was commissioned by The Brooklyn Academy of Musics 2012 Next Wave Festival, The International Festival of Arts & Ideas, The John F. Kennedy Center Abe Fortas Memorial Fund, The Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA, The Wake Forest University/Secrest Artists Series, and Hancher Performances at the University of Iowa. Reviewing the BAM performance for the New York Times, Anthony Tommasini wrote: It was Mr. Langs music, and the ethereal, pure-toned singing of Anonymous 4, that claimed me in the first section of the piece, which begins with the line he was a blessed man. In his liner notes, David Lang poses the question: Its the greatest love story ever! But why? Of course, there is excitement, drama, love, lust, shame, death, dragons. I think the real reason is because the love of Tristan and Isolde begins by accidentthey drink a love potion. They didnt mean to drink it, and they didnt mean to fall in love. They drink andBAM!it starts. Its almost a laboratory experiment into what love might be like without any of the complications of how real love begins or workswithout the excitement, embarrassment, frustration, guilt or competition present in the courtships of ordinary people.
