Programme Note:
This companion-piece to Penelope (2014) is also an homage to Harold Arlen’s Stormy Weather (lyrics by Ted Koehler), which begins:
Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together,
Keeps rainin' all of the time
It’s a poignant, yearning love-song, one that Kalypso – the nymph/demi-god of Homer’s Odyssey – could well have sung. After the storm which shipwrecked him on his way home from Troy to Ithaca (and to his waiting wife, Penelope) Odysseus was swept off-course to Kalypso’s island, and she held him there (against his will, but not really) for seven years, with some combination of seduction, timely bad weather that prevented sailing, and general relaxation and good times. Eventually, the greater gods grew frustrated with her and sent him on his way home, to Penelope. I’d imagined Penelope’s experience – her long vigil on the headland, her fierce, tenacious loyalty – as a sort of torch song, a language I explore even further here. Kalypso’s plea-apostrophe is set in a warm, tender, jazz-rich, Chopin-esque language in which the beat is blurred through long, decorative vocal lines and strange Monteverdian speech-stammer word-breakdown – which hints at something stranger and more peculiar in her powers. There are many musical connections here with Penelope, particularly in both pieces’ middle sections, which reach for something more bare and visionary. Each woman calls out to Odysseus, tries to summon him back to her, and in this moment their music speaks in the same tongue. Kalypso (whose name shares its root with "apocalypse": to cover, conceal, hide, deceive) was also a demi-god of death, one who drew the veil between reality and the afterlife.The opening vocalise should be extremely free. The repeated notes and long melismatic lines should gesture towards jazz scat singing; generally the repeated vowels focus on “i” (“I”, “why” “night” etc.; marked with tenutos): they should be delicate, decorative, spontaneous, and seductively strange.

Then & Now: Singer Burdett Back in Full Bloom after 15 Years
