John Honey's six poems offered fascinating challenges for me to create music to support his lightness of touch and humour in providing such a wealth of information about the Tasmanian Wine industry. Moments of great poignancy and numerous evocative imageries made my task a joy to attempt.
Instrumentation: Soprano, viola, double bass.
Duration: 28 min.
Contents note: 1. The oenology lexicon -- 2. Some Tasmanian vineyards and wines -- 3. Claudio at Moorilla -- 4. The soft dying day (from John Keats's 'Autumn') -- 5. A landscape wrapped by Christo -- 6. Some pioneers.
Dedication note: To the pioneers of the Tasmanian Wine industry
- In the form/style of: Song Cycles
