Small Boat of Stars
About this work:
A Small Boat of Stars, composed in 2016 is a diminutive diptych duo for violin and cello, written in memoriam for composer Stephen R. Gerber and commissioned by String Poet. The two movements, each based on a String Poet work, evoke the elegiac essence of the words rather than setting them literally and honor the memory of a beloved colleague, gone too soon and too suddenly.
Year composed: 2016
Ensemble type: Chamber or Jazz Ensemble, Without Voice:Other Combinations, 2-5 players
Instrumentation: 1 Violin, 1 Cello
