Soprano Catherine Redding and pianist Yonit Kosovske perform Lili Boulanger’s song cycle Clairières dans le ciel (Clearings in the Sky). This beautiful work is approximately 35 minutes long, ideal for a lunch time concert.

 

Soprano Catherine Redding and pianist Yonit Kosovske perform Lili Boulanger’s song cycle Clairières dans le ciel (Clearings in the Sky). The thirteen texts are drawn from Tristesses (Sorrows), a collection of twenty-four poems written by  Francis Jammes (1868–1938). The songs are filled with symbolism, nostalgia, hope, and intense longing for love.

Yonit and Catherine say:

“We are thrilled to be a part of Finding a Voice where we will perform Clairières dans le ciel, a profoundly beautiful song cycle by Lili Boulanger, whose composition brings the poetry of Francis Jammes to life through a unique and sophisticated musical language expressing nostalgia and longing for love. We are grateful to be able to share this repertoire in Clonmel. Finding a Voice is doing amazing and important work by celebrating female composers.”
