A Time to Blossom sets the poetry of Hildegard of Bingen, Emily Dickinson and Hannah Senesh. These women of divergent times and traditions share an appreciation of the divine unity at all levels of being. The work was commissioned by the Humanities Department of the University of South Carolina and first performed there in 1990.
This compelling vocal work can be performed with piano or harp and the violin obligato provides a musical depiction of the titular swan. The archetypal romantic poetry is by the Swedish poet, Bottiger and singing translations are given in German and French in addition to the original Swedish. An English translation is also included in the forward.
A mesmerizing and compelling work, Romp has the effect of luring the listener in with the playfulness implied in its title only to take us on a brief intense and driving excursion. Melodic echoes of Milhaud and Copland play against Alexander’s subtle and surprising rhythms.
