I. Come to Me
for piano and mezzo-soprano (2019)
This piece is a setting of Christina Rossetti’s poem, Echo:
Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
As sunlight on a stream;
Come back in tears,
O memory, hope, love of finished years.
This is a recording of the piece’s premiere at a Student Composer Concert at the University of Toronto in 2019. The performers are Hannah Mazurek (mezzo-soprano) and Katharine Petkovski (piano).
