Myosotis (2012)

Monica Meneghetti’s poem Myosotis captured the sense of wondrous aliveness I have felt while trekking through the Rocky Mountains, and inspired me with how a poem, or even a forget-me-not flower, can recall such a feeling.  In response, I sought to create a musical invocation, and convey my sense of the poem through sound integrated with text.   Through the course of the work, a short musical motive is developed to evoke both the outer surroundings and inner mental states, and incorporated with extended use of the piano strings, in striving for the unique, heightened intensity of mountain experiences.

Duration: ca. 10 minutes

Instrumentation: solo speaking pianist
