Major Andre's Way
Op. 10 (2016/2018) for bass voice
Three out of six movements from Major Andre's Way, a song cycle for bass voice and piano. This cycle tells the story of a fictional war hero named Major Andre, who confronts death and immortality. The texts used are poems by Emily Dickinson, who did not arrange any of these poems together. I selected and arranged her poems to tell a new story.
