Evie Dances : a cycle of three songs for voice and piano

by Betty Beath (2018)

Work Overview

I was attracted to these texts by the poet, Jena Woodhouse, who had written them for her grand-daughter, Evie. When I wrote these songs I hoped to capture the simplicity of the text through expressive phrasing and line. The piano accompaniment, as well as providing support to the voice, is, in each of the three works, an equal partner. A legato line is important for both instruments, as is contrast in colour and tone. The three songs are similar in style, tempos move leisurely and communication of the text is, of course, important.
