A cycle for voice and cello
« on: December 10, 2016, 02:10:43 PM »
I hope this might be of interest to you.

I have just written a cycle of five songs for voice (soprano/tenor) and cello called "Songs of simple desires". My aim was to create pieces in which the elaborate imagery of the poetry by Russian, German, English and Japanese poets is matched by the expressive quality of the music where a phrase, or even a word, is isolated from its context by a distinct musical thought and texture.

I would like to present to you a song based on a wonderful poem by Ossip Mandelstam:
