Programme Notes

I stumbled across the phrase '... in the mirrors of asleep...' in a poem by Anne Stevenson. I suppose it is where we see the faces of the people we have lost. The piece is about eight minutes long and is broken music of whispers, ticking clocks, brooding chords and silences. In the Mirrors of Asleep was written in memory of Corin Long. In the Mirrors of Asleep was commissioned by Dartington International Summer School.
