Product details

Matthew Dewey's Il Tempo Passa was commissioned by Michael Lampard for performance in this recital at Mona Foma 2011. In composing the cycle Matthew took the notion of writing music that moves in and out of a historically referential musical language. In doing this, he composed a work that is both modern and timeless, focusing on the devout, sacred nature of Michelangelo's poetry and the themes included within. The work has an almost mystical quality, and one that talks directly to the audience of Michelangelo's struggle and self-expression. The poems for Matthew Dewey's work are modern English translations of Michelangelo's poetry.
