Time is endless
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Miškinis has long held a fascination for the writings of the Bengali polymath Rabindranath Tagore and his Gitanjali (Song Offerings). These writings express a meditative metaphysical outlook, and Miškinis has set a number of these using Tagore’s own English translation. Time is endless was written in 2007 for the Singapore Youth Choir and is a good illustration of the composer’s desire to be led at all times by the text. Using traditional Romantic means of word-painting, he takes an unhurried approach, allowing ample time to contemplate the substance of each line of text. A serene dominant-seventh chord ending the work leaves time hanging in the air.
