Low Tide (Unaccompanied)

For unaccompanied mezzo-soprano

This setting has special meaning for me, both as a father and as a personal friend of the poet. Anthony Jesse and I share many fond memories from our bohemian 20’s living in San Francisco. He studied guitar at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, I was a pianist taking a gap year before graduate school. We shared a love of art, music, poetry, and literature together in that magical time in one’s life when anything and everything seemed possible. Now that I have my own family with teenage children, there is an added poignancy in setting this wonderful text written by a dear friend on a subject I know all too well.

A version of this piece with piano accompaniment is also available here.
