Product details

une seule femme endormie was written very quickly after a long period of consideration of the brooding text of Jouve's poem. Formally the work is very free and responds dramatically to the emotional nuances of the text. The work unfolds from a fragment of the opening cello line which recurs in varied forms throughout the work. The unusual aspect of the cellist being called upon to hum and sing was a response to the dense ambiguity of time and space evoked by the poem. Beyond this, however, the vocal contributions of the instrumentalist lend an added depth to the vocal line itself, while at the same time projecting a sense of mystery and longing that is also inherent in Jouve's moving poem.
