Product details

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.
