Patricia Caicedo has been an inspiration to me throughout my career. A singer and scholar, Patricia is the founder and director of the Barcelona Festival of Song. This festival celebrates and promotes art songs by Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, and Latin-American composers. Her mission is to educate and promote an entire world of repertoire that isn’t studied or performed as often as the “standard,” Euro-centric repertoire. This piece was written for Patricia and premiered at the 15th Barcelona Festival of Song at the legendary Palau de la Música Catalana. In preparation for this piece, Patricia introduced me to Carles Duarte, one of the most prominent poets in the Catalan language. He has such a beautiful style of writing about nature, love, and the human experience. I started drafting some ideas for setting his poems to music when Patricia relayed to me the news that Marius Sampere had recently died. Sampere was a close friend and colleague of Duarte’s. I would say these men were cut from the same cloth and had a similar ability to observe life from a unique, omniscient perspective. Patricia wanted to honor Sampere at the premiere of this song cycle, so we decided to join the works of these men through music.
