The Eve of Waterloo

for Heldentenor and Piano

THE EVE OF WATERLOO (2014) features Lord Byron’s poem about the events of the night before the battle of Quatre Bras, which was fought near Brussels, on June 16, 1815, and was the preliminary of the great battle of Waterloo.

The piece was written for Heldentenor John Packard and commissioned to premiere in June 2015 at the concert “The music of Liam Wade and Richard Wagner in recital” at the German Residence, San Francisco, presented by the Wagner Society of Northern California and the Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany.
