Two Songs of Czeslaw Milosz

Date of Composition: 
Chamber Instrumentation: 
Soprano and Piano

The two poems set were both written during WW II. In the first one, A Song On the End of the World,the apocalypse is imagined in the penultimate line, which is then repeated. The simplicity of the music in the opening of Recovery is as though one emerged from a shelter to find the world still existent.
