for orchestra

Duration: 4'30"

First performed by Brand New Orchestra at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester. (12/10/17)

'ABLOOM: Where Quiet Falls Asleep is a short orchestral work based on the poem, ‘A Fantasy’ by Sara Teasdale (1884-1933). The piece is inspired by both the imagery and phrase structure within the prose and therefore, acts as an unspoken vocalization of the poem. The work seeks to create an atmospheric soundworld to reflect the dream- like movements of nature portrayed in ‘A Fantasy’.'©G.E.M.2017
