Featuring 'Fern Hill' by John Corigliano and songs by Morten Lauridsen, Arvo Pärt, Ola Gjeilo, Imant Raminsh, and Sid Robinovitch. Directed by KCC Interim Artistic Director, Rocky Tejada.
The work ‘Fern Hill,’ by American composer John Corigliano, is based on the Dylan Thomas poem of the same name. Thomas’s poem evokes a nostalgic view of a childhood spent on a farm “among the barns” as a youth “green and golden.” Corigliano’s setting emphasizes the musicality of Thomas’s words and moves between full choir, quartet, and soprano solo to bring out the lyricism of the poem. The other pieces on the program were selected for their reflective and nostalgic expressions of peace and dreams.
