Description

for solo alto and guitar Settings of nine poems by Irene Noel-Baker which take and transform elements of Greek myths. The piece shifts from the mythological past to the present, just as the medium of voice and guitar suggest both 'early music' (with lute) and the folk or pop of today. Powers alludes to each kind of music and, in a way, re-invents lute-songs.show more

About Anthony Powers

Born in London in 1953, Anthony Powers studied at Oxford, in Paris with Nadia Boulanger, and at York with David Blake and Bernard Rands. He taught for two years at Dartington College of Arts before being appointed Composer-in-Residence to Southern Arts. Since then he has moved to Herefordshire where he continues to divide his time between composing and teaching, currently at Cardiff University, where he has been Professor of composition since 2004. Powers's music is characterized by strong architectonic frameworks that support a language of poetic intensity and magical sonorities. His music often takes its inspiration from the tension between different states, be they physical properties, landscapes, seasons or emotions.show more
