Studies in Poetry – Volume 2
Continuing the Studies in Poetry series that began with Volume 1 in 2000, Volume 2 is also a set of three highly contrasting pieces that are really concert etudes. Volume 2 was completed and premiered by the composer in 2009 with each piece paying tribute to one of the composer’s favourite books of poetry written in the English language. Although written as a set, each piece is designed to stand on its own. 37 pages.
More information can be read about each individual study in the publication’s introductory notes found in the samples below. In many ways though, the character of the music can be found in the title for both the study/etude and the book of poetry. The name of the poet who wrote the book of poetry is provided in brackets.
No. 4 – Loop (Anne Simpson)
No. 5 – War Music (Christopher Logue)
No. 6 – Escape Velocity (David Breskin)
