Orpheus and Euridice

A Song Cycle In Two Acts for Soprano, Clarinet In Bb and Piano

Ricky Ian Gordon (composer)


A tender song cycle in two parts that tells the familiar story in more contemporary terms (text by the composer); Orpheus and Euridice is full of Ricky Ian Gordon’s characteristic lyricism. The sixty minute work can be staged, but works as a concert piece as well. A recording of Orpheus and Euridice is available on Ghostlight Records.
