The Tiger
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Tiger (1987) is a companion piece to The Lamb. The music nevertheless responds to Blake’s images in a more obvious way than that of The Lamb: it has a pulsing, surging energy appropriate to the tiger, and a dazzling range of colour. Particularly splendid is the music for ‘When the stars threw down their spears’, which is followed immediately by a masterly musical reminiscence of The Lamb at ‘Did he who made the Lamb make thee?’.
