Above the Green Night

Above the Green Night

Federico García Lorca’s “Poem of the Deep Song” is steeped in strong, beautiful imagery of love and death. I took some of these images as points of departure for Above the Green Night. The first movement, Blind Archers, is fast and unsettled like a chase, interspersed with two brief dream-like sections. Each player is given a chance to rest and sing in the second movement, Hour of Stars.
