Songs of Love and Lust (2012)
This song cycle, for soprano and piano, explores the "other side" of the inspiration. The dialogue of the muse to the writer/composer and how it becomes from an unreachable idea to her staying by his side. It starts with the "scoff" from her to him telling him that she is only an idea and song after song it develops to the realization of her asking him to stay and the last song, an analogy of a romantic relationship through the four seasons of the year.
Tiana Raechelle, soprano
Tim Peterson, piano
