Notes

Inspired by Rodin’s Orpheus and the Furies, my trio borrows its title from Rilke’s telling of the death of Orpheus under the hands of the raging maenads.

They tore you to pieces at last, in a frenzy,

while your sound lingered on in lions and rocks,

and in trees and birds. You still sing there.

Sonnets to Orpheus, I, 26 (Rainer Maria Rilke, trans. D. Young)

This work was written for and first performed by Torbjörn Hultmark, Bruce Nockles and Helen Tunstall conducted by Odaline de la Martinez at the AHRI Festival 2016, King’s College London.
