Instrumentation: 2 voices, 2 cellos

Duration: 15 minutes

Program Notes

Vignettes-Trees is a companion piece to my cycle Vignettes-Flowers – the latter setting poems about flowers for SATB with solo cello accompaniment, and the former setting poems which have trees as a central image for 2 cellos and 2 voices. The poems in both works are all by the wonderfully unique New Jersey poet, William Carlos Williams. Of course, these poems are not really about trees and flowers at all – but use the image of trees to say something important about the usual subjects of poetry – love, for instance.
