The Amherst Chronicles: 2019 Harrow Summer Music Festival

I recently composed a song cycle for soprano and piano, The Amherst Chronicles, with lyrics by Emily Dickinson. The songs chart the passing of the seasons in a calendar year in Dickinson's home town of Amherst, Massachusetts.

 

The work was premiered by Nina Kopparhed and Neil Crossland at the 2019 Harrow Summer Music Festival and recorded by them in August 2020; click on the SoundCloud player to listen.
