Palladio – as if your human shape were what the storm

Palladio Ensemble Aleph. Live Performance, Mazsalaca, Latvia, August 2010 (also see video documentation below)

This piece was written for Ensemble Aleph: soprano, clarinet, piano, percussion, violin, cello. This piece was composed for Ensemble Aleph for the 5th Annual Workshop for Young Composers.

The text goes as follows:

Palladio who beckons from the other shore,
Floating on the sky.
The road, but not far enough ahead
The road, but not far enough ahead
giddy as good kids playing hookey. Now,
Late February, and the air’s so balmy
Wheezing ravens, when
Snow haze gleams like sand.
Only a whiter absence to my mind,
So you can watch me watch uplifted snow
Gray the cloud-like oaks
XIII. The Route to the North
then takes a step back, to be safe as she reaches.
grow hot in the parking lot, though they’re
I’ve drifted somewhat from the distant heart
That square-Oh, 56 x 56
Preface to the 1970 Edition
As if your human shape were what the storm
XX. To the Pole
