Mulberry Song

Mulberry clip

Commissioned by Brad Baumgartner, “Mulberry Song” is for bass clarinet and CD inspired by two poems by William Carlos Williams written in 1960 shortly before his death, Solo: Li Po and Tribute to Neruda: Collector of Seashells. The underlying form of the piece is based on a secret round.  This idea emerged from a few lines in Solo where Williams speaks of a Mulberry Song.
