A bit of the newest piece..

The work uses phrases from the first chapter of Vigil Harbor, a novel by Julia Glass. From the title for the whole piece, Say That Geography Is Destiny, we go to individual movements: I. Aimed Straight Toward the Sun, II. Enclosed by Restless Water, and III. Rugged with Rock. The words describe different aspects of a promontory that is the main setting for the novel, a place that’s seen as a safer haven than most in a time of seashore climate changes. Here’s a portion of the piece – the last movement, played by Laura Artesani with me last weekend.
