Sheet Music: Score
À Aurore : for Renaissance quartet / music by Victoria Pham ; words by George Sand.
by Victoria Pham (2018)
The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries have fascinated me for a number of years. Not in the least that the figure who dominates the work is a woman, exalted and adorned with symbols or the six senses. But perhaps this is what is the most interesting; that the Lady is still, silent and yet within that silence, her presence profoundly powerful. Seemingly contradictory to her mute and ethereal aura, I have found the words of French female poet and author George Sand evocative, soft, amber and burgundy - reflective of he hues and that I associate with the tapestries. Her words (with flickers of reference to her musical partner, Frederic Chopin) and the colours of the 16th century tapestry inspired my work, À Aurore, for renaissance quartet.
