Description

for soprano and piano With specially written poems by Karlis Verdins based on the Adonis chapters from Frazer's The Golden Bough, each song in this little cycle explores a single Affekt. The first is doleful and laden, the second aerated and evanescent, the third is static and expansive, with a hint of a march for the troops, while the fourth is spare and rather withdrawn. The fifth song is very brief and slightly enigmatic, leading to a final movement that tries to capture something of the poem's lush, but ultimately redemptive, grief.show more

About Gabriel Jackson

Born in Bermuda in 1962 and a prize-winning student while at the Royal College of Music, Gabriel Jackson describes his music as 'essentially contemplative', a quality abundant in his choral works. Jackson's highly individual voice is in demand both here and further afield; his music has been commissioned and performed by a variety of leading ensembles and choirs, among them the BBC Singers, The Netherlands Choir, Capella Nova, and Chapelle du Roi, and regularly programmed at prestigious festivals throughout the UK and Europe.show more
