To Immortal Bloom (by Bob Becker)

Price: $65.00

Product Information

To Immortal Bloom was composed during June/July 2017 and is scored for soprano, vibraphone, cello and piano. The lyrics are drawn from poem XXI of Conrad Aiken’s Preludes for Memnon (1931), with the text edited by the composer. The obvious musical and numerical references, as well as a feeling of reverie in the concluding imagery, were the inspiration for the musical setting. The melodic and harmonic material is strictly derived from a matrix of four nine-tone scales that has been the basis for all of my music for the past twenty years.
