A Poe Fantasia” premieres

I had been bat­tling a cold (or some­thing) all week, but I couldn’t miss the pre­miere of my new com­po­si­tion, “A Poe Fan­ta­sia” this past Tues­day, Feb 2, 2010. Soprano Sofia Dim­itrova and accom­pa­nist Cather­ine Miller pro­vided a com­pelling inter­pre­ta­tion to my set­tings of the great poet Edgar Allan Poe: A Dream Within a Dream, To the River, and Alone. Here are some pics from the evening; the venue was Saint Peters Church at the Cit­i­group Cen­ter. (Click on pics for larger size.)
