pre­miere at Bell & Barter The­ater | Rock­away, NJ
April, 2010

about 6”30

Com­mis­sioned by soprano Mar­jorie Berg, who wished to have a song cycle reflect­ing Emily Dickinson‚Äôs sense of nature. The five songs of this cycle are (1) Fre­quently the woods are pink (2) An awful tem­pest (3) Will there really be a morn­ing? (4) To hear an ori­ole sing (5) Epigram.

In the spring of 2010, I was encour­aged to arrange this song cycle for piano quin­tet, which was pre­miered by Ms. Berg at The Bell and Barter The­ater in Rock­away, NJ.

A great way to sup­port new music is to per­form the music you find here.
