Eclipse for Voice (Mezzo-Soprano) and Piano (PDF Download)
Eclipse is a work for mezzo-soprano and piano meant to be part of a song cycle. This work is meant to be sung by a woman who has removed herself from involvement in any more romantic relationships. This piece reveals why, as she bore witness to the acts of an unfaithful lover. Haunted by these memories she taps into a well of unresolved bitterness that consumes her and she is unable to suppress her pain.
It was my pleasure to work with Amber Farish (Mezzo-Soprano) and Brandon Clinton (Piano) for the premiere of this piece on November 14th, 2011 in Orlando, Florida.
