Join our concertmaster Celeste Golden Andrews and her fellow Summermusik musicians as they present works inspired by literature. Debussy and Vaughan Williams found their inspiration in poems by Stéphane Mallarmé and George Meredith, respectively. Walton’s musical setting of Edith Sitwell’s poetry was intended as an accompaniment of a recitation of Façade. Schubert used his incidental music to Helmina von Chézy’s play Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus for his A minor quartet, and returned to Matthias Claudius’s poem, which he had previously used for the song of same title (D. 531).
