Text by Amy Lowell

ByAmy Scurria

Listening for tenor, cello, and piano ​Commissioned by Collective Euphonia (Scott Williamson, Founder). Premiered by Scott Williamson (tenor); Julia Goudimova (cello); and Anna Billias (piano) at the University of Washington and Lee. January 21, 2023. Listening by Amy Lowell ’T is you that are the music, not your song. The song is but a door which, opening wide, Lets forth the pent-up melody inside, Your spirit’s harmony, which clear and strong Sing but of you. Throughout your whole life long Your songs, your thoughts, your doings, each divide This perfect beauty; waves within a tide, Or single notes amid a glorious throng. The song of earth has many different chords; Ocean has many moods and many tones Yet always ocean. In the damp Spring woods The painted trillium smiles, while crisp pine cones Autumn alone can ripen. So is this One music with a thousand cadences. ​Duration: 7 minutes For further information: https://www.amyscurria.com/listening
