I conversed with you in a dream - three short excerpts by Jocelyn Morlock published on 2013/03/20 01:28:25 +0000 II - Mingled with all kinds of colours III - A delicate fire IV - I conversed with you in a dream (II) Excerpts of the second through fourth sections of "I conversed with you in a dream" for flute and piano duo. Performed by Tiresias - Mark Takeshi McGregor, flute, and Rachel Kiyo Iwaasa, piano. Program Note: The four short pieces which comprise “I conversed with you in a dream” were inspired by fragments of poetry written by Sappho. Nearly all of Sappho’s poetry is preserved in fragmentary forms (of the various phrases I used, only “a delicate fire” is excerpted from a full poem.) I find these fragments incredibly powerful and evocative; the various sound-worlds of each of these short pieces were conceived of as responses to Sappho’s pungent imagery.
