Feeding on the Light
About the work
The poem ‘The Sunflower’ by Eugenio Montale, translated by Jeremy Reed, inspired the piece – (it would be useful for an audience to see the poem).
First Performance: Gemini, CoMA Summer School
Straightforward technically – some time and mood changes. Free time section for cello, violin, and clarinet. Unusual technique for strings at end – jete col legno glissandi with bow in left hand. Notes on this technique in score.
