Notes de programme :
Composed in the summer and fall of 2007, The Keats Cycle represents an a empt to express the pure and introspective poetry of John Keats (1795-1821) through a musical discourse that would somehow be appropriate to both Keats’s 19th-century world and the composer’s 21st-century one.
The cycle unites five posthumous poems by Keats, as well as the poet’s epitaph, in an order that creates a sense of philosophical unity and direction. The dramatic-musical interpretation of the texts traces a conceptual line from youthful idealism, through to self-doubt, self-realization, death, and finally to apotheosis.
The fifth piece in the cycle, ‘This Living Hand’, was given its recital premiere by baritone Arri Simon and pianist Daniel Schlosberg in Paris on July 20, 2007.
The cycle was given its full premiere by Philippe Sly (bass-baritone) and Thomas Carr (piano) on February 10, 2010 at Vanier College, Montreal. The orchestral version was premiered by Philippe Sly
