Sun Songs for Soprano, English horn, cello, and piano
Sun Songs for Soprano, English horn, Cello, and Piano
The 3 texts for Sun Songs comes from translated text of the North American Indians. I thought these three texts fit together well in telling a story of honoring the sun and nature for what it does, from bringing beautiful colors to the sky to giving us food and life. I also brought these texts together honor the Native Americans who were here first and who appreciated the Earth and all it provides for us. This work was commissioned by Definiens on the occasion of their 10th anniversary as a new music ensemble dedicated to presenting new music with special guest soprano Tony Arnold.
Watch the video from the premiere of the work with Tony Arnold-soprano, Ryan Zwahlen-English horn, David Mergen-cello, Jeanette Louise Yaryan-piano. Highways in Santa Monica - February 2013.
