Product details

The text for this work is taken from four poems (three complete, one extract) from American lyric poet Sara Teasdale's fifth collection of poetry, 'Flame and Shadow' (1920).

The words speak of beauty, of true knowledge of self, and of the somewhat enigmatic and curious process of creating- in particular, how what you create connects to and is a part of who you are.

The resultant work is like a song cycle, with each individual 'song' developing its own musical material. All four sections are sprinkled with flickers of light and harmonic warmth, heard alongside more subdued and hazy moments. The harmonic language of the work relies heavily upon intervals of 4ths and 5ths, and it was my intention to juxtapose passages of 'closed' sound against that of 'open' sound, as the note sets created by the perfect intervals contract and expand according to what I perceive as the direction of the text.
