Three Songs (2013)

for Soprano, Flute, Cello, and Piano

Texts by Thomas Lux from "The Street of Clocks" (2001)

Duration: 13 min.

Premiere: Performed June 18, 2013 at the Silicon Valley Music Festival by Susan Narucki (soprano), Ray Faruta (flute), Alexandra Le (piano), and Stella Cho (piano)

This three-song cycle is an expansion upon an earlier work of mine, Plague Victims Catapulted over Walls into Besieged City. Ray Faruta performed that song with soprano and piano and requested an expanded version with cello, so I wrote two more songs and created this cycle.
