Quick Overview

Two very brief gems, 1. All Alone and 2. These Days, for very limited voice tessitura (within the range of a major 9th)" The two songs are based on two 4-line stanzas from "170 Chinese Poems," translated by Arthur Waley. In each contrasting song the crystalline melody is provided with a similar occompaniment restricted to one staff line. All Alone employs a pitch ostinato on Bb in the accompanient, while These days is constructed around a recurring rhythmic figure and its augmentations and diminutions. For studios, schools, collleges, professional. Very easy.
