BBC/Royal Philharmonic Society co-commission to premiere at Cheltenham Festival July 10th

The BBC and The Royal Philharmonic Society co-commissioned a song cycle for BBC New Generation artist, soprano Katharina Konradi. The cycle is about childhood, and I set 4 poems to music — 2 by MacArthur “Genius” A.E. Stallings, 1 by Eugene Field and 1 by Minnesota Poet Laureate Joyce Sutphen. The cycle’s title is taken from Joyce’s poem: The Imaginary Photo Album. The work was composed between October 2019 and February 2020.

The premiere is set for July 10, 2020 at the Cheltenham Music Festival in Cheltenham, England; with a repeat performance scheduled for October 25, 2020 at Wigmore Hall in London.
