Sheet Music: Score & Part(s)
Still the Light Burns, op. 15a : for violin and piano / Jack Symonds.
by Jack Symonds (2012)
Still the Light Burns is a series of interrelated movements dealing with music from my opera Climbing Toward Midnight. The title is taken from a line by the Expressionist poet Georg Trakl that forms the central dramatic panel in Act II of the opera. The musical phrase Kundry sings- "O how still the light burns"- forms the basis for all the movements' variations whether sobbing, singing, flying or in various states of canon.
