Four Yankee Songs

(2011)

Duration: approx. 13 min
























Performed by Ohio Wesleyan University students


Program Note:


A cycle of Robert Frost texts, Four Yankee Songs consists of a collection of what could be called folk-influenced ‘near-songs.’ Each member of the cycle contains hummable melodic material and draws from different vocal music influences such as recitative and da capo aria, but without completely fulfilling the traditional expectations of any specific vocal form.

Instrumentation:


Mezzo-soprano

Piano
