"mmy ffirrsstt llovve" is a true story about a first marriage at an early age. The story recalls events during the marriage, and a lifetime of emotional aftermath. The music is programmatic, with distinct motifs attached to each emotion, person, and event. The song is loosely comprised of eleven sections: beginning with the optimism of young adulthood, progressing to falling in love, the marriage, shifting to New York, life in New York, difficulties creeping in, a nervous breakdown, splitting up, ten years on, then twenty years on, with the resolution taking place in New Zealand.
Text by Daniel Stabler (composer)
