Song of the Hart was commissioned by my friend Wayne, who asked me to write him something dark, wild and beautiful. By way of inspiration, he sent me several gorgeous images of a stag standing wild, alert and magnificent, its antlered head held high; he also wrote of the pounding heart of the stag, the rush of its breath, and its power and courage.

In addition to being a musical stew inspired by the above images and ideas, this piece incorporates two specific motifs based on actual field recordings. First is the call of the hunting horn, which echoes through the forest and throughout the piece. Later, hidden deep in the piece (from 4:07 to 4:33) is the staccato roar of a red stag, as it might sound if the stag had a voice like a cello. 


from Wyverns in the Winery (and other flights of fancy), released September 26, 2017
Cello: Betsy Tinney

For Wayne, of course. <3
