The puppet maker, music of Betty Beath
For a long time I had been drawn to the poetry of Subagio Sastrowardoyo. I love the imagination and simplicity in his writing and also his direct approach. Dr. Harry Aveling, in his translation, captures all of these qualities. The Puppet Maker' is a song for voice and piano that I originally scored for voice and orchestra. In that form it was titled 'Genesis,' and was part of a cycle, "Gambar Gambar Jawa", commissioned by the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. - Betty Beath
