Programme Note:
Dante (Alighieri)’s prose has long been a source of inspiration for musicians. Composers as close to us as Luciano Berio have employed Dante texts in their music. Even Franz Liszt’s piano piece ‘Aprés une lecture de Dante’ credits the thirteenth century Italian as having “driven his spirit to put ink to paper.” During the preparation for my own piece, Dante’s La Vita Nuova was suggested by a linguistic scholar and friend. He recommended this lesser-known verse by Dante as it could be set musically, in short sections and would lend itself aptly to a vocal context.
