Product details

I have, for a long time, been attracted to the poetry of Federico García Lorca. The richness of imagery, even when translated from Spanish into English, retains its startling colours that sparkle and leap off the page. Lorca's love of music and ability to capture musicality within poetry made the setting of these texts a real joy. The set began with a commission from the Adelaide-based Benaud Trio and was completed in 2016 with the addition of a new first song Song for the Moon commissioned especially for the Australian Festival of Chamber Music in Townsville where the complete set was first performed.
