The Agnostic is David Chesky's most elaborate and contemplative work to date. An oratorio written for full orchestra, symphonic choir and three vocal soloists, The Agnostic is a courageous hymn on what it means to be alone in a Godless universe. Basing his libretto on the philosophies of existentialism, Chesky does not flinch from harsh revelations and, by tempering the harshness with exquisite melody and harmony, he brings the concept of agnosticism to a new level. Audiophiles will want to take note: the sound on this project is almost unprecedented in its dynamic range and stunning realism.
