Product Description

Version for Guitar-Soprano and Strings


This guitar and vocal work were originally set on the Robert Frost poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,
and was written for a lecture series at Boston University given by Lukas Foss entitled Words on Music". Some
years later I set out to publish the work and found that the estate of the late R. Frost frowned upon this particular
practice and after a second failed attempt to get permission to publish the work, I decided to write my own verse for
this composition (my first actually) and use a subject familiar to me, the story of Daedalus and Icarus Journey to
freedom.
After his arrival in Crete, Daedalus found that Minos would not let him leave. He subsequently obtained wax and
feathers and fashioned wings for himself and his son Icarus. With these they succeeded in flying away, but Icarus,
flying too near to the sun, melted his wings, fell into the sea near Crete, and drowned; Daedalus escaped to Italy
only to fall into the hands of the local King Kokalos who drowned him in hot water.
