Program Notes

Commissioned by the Universidad Technica Particular de Loja, this music sets four poems by Fernando Rielo – mystical poet, philosopher, author, metaphysician. The poems I selected share common images – birds, wings, branches, wind – that seemed to me to vividly capture in symbolic language a sense of wonderment in the way the forms of the world are but representations of higher ideals – and ultimately, love.
