Notes de programme :
"Wind on the Downs" was inspired by a poem of the same name by British writer, Marian Allen. The poem was written in May 1917, a few days after she learned the news that her fiancé, Arthur Tylston Greg, had been killed in an air battle over France. He was 22 years old.You will hear a female narrator reading Allen’s poem, while the music leads the listener on a path through the various emotional stages of grieving a loved one. The piece incorporates some melodic ideas based on military bugle calls, which will gently morph as the poet winds her way through the journey of making sense of her loss. Although the poem is a very personal one, I believe it’s also universal—the challenge of moving through the loss of someone close, to eventually find some kind of renewed hope in life."Wind on the Downs" was commissioned by the Allegra Chamber Orchestra, for premiere at Mountain View Cemetery, Vancouver, Canada, on Remembrance Day (November 11th), 2017.
