Description

Composer's Note:

I wrote “Lullaby for Our Time” the day after attending Aaron’s [Larget-Caplan] internet concert, “Time, Hope and Rebirth,” via Groupmuse. The night of the concert I was struck by the virtual format of this performance, made necessary by our current quarantine from the coronavirus. Still we gathered, still the music played and Aaron communicated warmth and feeling despite the uncertainty and across the distance. The concert as a whole seemed a lullaby for the moment, and the next day I wrote a poem about this experience. I initially set the poem for voice and piano, and then arranged that song for guitar. This is the third lullaby I've written for Aaron, comfort for this singular point in time. The poem remains essentially entwined with the guitar solo; the words may be imagined along with the melodic line.

Comments

Performance Note:

Ideally, the poem should be incorporated into the performance - either through a reading or included in the program.
