Product Description

Four movements; soprano, string quartet; ca. 12 min.

The composer writes: Rabindranath Tagores Song Offerings are the poets own English-language translations of his Bengali-language Gitanjali. While Tagores translations are not exactly literal, they present to the Western world a window into the tradition of Hindu devotional poetry. (Tagore won the 1913 Nobel Prize for literature for the collection.)

The four excerpts I have chosen to set to music, love and beauty are recurring themes, richly elaborated with images from nature. But as with many of the poems in Gitanjali: Song Offerings, the love and beauty can be interpreted as either worldly or spiritual.
