Programme Note

Commissioned by Baroque Voices, La Próxima Vez is a setting of a poem by NZ/Venezuelan poet Desirée Gezentsvey. When she gave me a book of her beautiful poetry a couple of years ago, I was determined to set some of it – the opportunity finally arose when Pepe Becker approached me with this commission – I knew it was perfect. The poems are in English with Spanish translations – I chose the Spanish version for this setting as it’s such musical language, and I felt it suited the atmospheric yet emotional tone of the music.
