Program Notes

On Saturday, I had a chat with soprano Laura Dixon Strickling. She reached out regarding her plan, as she neared her 40th birthday, to commission 40 songs from 40 songs, and wanted to know if I would be interested. Of course!

That same day, I wrote “Idilio” in my usual fashion. With no particular idea in mind, I let my eyes roam across my book shelves, and they landed on my volume of Lorca’s collected poetry. Flipping through the pages, his poem “Idilio” seemed like a great poem for a song – and several hours later it was done.

Dedicated to Laura.
