BETWEEN THE BLISS AND ME

Songs to Poems of Emily Dickinson

A. COPLAND

Nature, the gentlest mother

When they come back

Sleep is supposed to be

Heart, we will forget him

The world feels dusty

I felt a funeral in my brain

The Chariot

Why do they shut me out of heaven?

Going to Heaven!

J. DUKE Bee!

I’m expecting you!

A. FARWELL

The Butterfl y

Aristocracy

I’m nobody! Who are you?

Wild Nights!

The Sabbath

E. BACON

To make a prairie

It’s all I have to bring

And this of all my hopes

L. LAITMAN

I gained it so

R. PEARSON-THOMAS

I never saw a moor

S. GENDEL

Forgotten Light: Bring me the sunset / Wild Nights!

L. HOIBY

The Shining Place

Julia Faulkner, soprano

Martha Fischer, piano

Lee Hoiby, piano

The poetry of Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), now considered to be one of the greatest American writers, expresses a profound depth of feeling which has long been an inspiration to composers of art songs. Eight of the finest in this genre explore Dickinson’s universal themes of love, death, immortality, and man’s relationship with nature, from Aaron Copland’s famous evocative settings, to songs from Scott Gendel’s ASCAP/Lehmann prizewinning cycle Forgotten Light. Lee Hoiby’s profoundly moving contributions are his last recording as a pianist.

Emily Dickinson’s often quirky but always unmistakable poetry has a vast readership, and this collection of settings by eight acclaimed composers of art-songs opens new dimensions to her fascinating world, riding high on an already explosively successful literary phenomenon. Aside from her contributions to numerous fine recordings of core repertoire, such as her “pure-toned, girlish vulnerability” in Verdi’s Falstaff (Gramophone on 8660050-51), Julia Faulkner’s “sumptuously creamy voice” (Opera News) made her album of songs by Lee Hoiby (8559375) a great success, as it will in this carefully selected programme of songs set to poems by Emily Dickinson.
