Water Night
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
For Water Night (1995), a subtle, ecstatically poised response to a remarkable poem by the Mexican, Nobel Prize-winning writer Octavio Paz (1914–1998), Whitacre wrote: ‘The poetry of Octavio Paz is a composer’s dream. The music seems to set itself (without the usual struggle that invariably accompanies this task) and the process feels more like cleaning the oils from an ancient canvas to reveal the hidden music than composing.’
