Gordon, Ricky Ian Late Afternoon

Vocal Composer Collections w/Piano

  • Gordon, Ricky Ian

    Late Afternoon [mezzo-soprano]

    Six songs on poems by Jane Kenyon, Jean Valentine & Marie Howe. After a major personal loss, Gordon turned to the poetry of these women who speak of loss and death in a way that he found particularly consoling. The songs are beautifully written for a medium voice with Gordon's usual care. A dissonant and colorful keyboard part is a great enhancement to the generally reflective tone of the music. Gordon's moving setting of the late Jane Kenyon's heartbreaking Let Everyone Come is destined to be a recital classic. Late Afternoon was commissioned by Tisch Center of the Arts at the 92nd Street Y and was made possible with funds provided by the Mary Flagler Charitable Trust.
