Baby-Angel Barcarolle was commissioned in 1994 by the New England Conservatory Preparatory Division as a piece for young players. You’ll probably notice that I was hanging out with the Bartok Violin Duets at the time. The piece is dedicated to the violinist Robin Lorentz.
Baby-Angel Barcarolle is part of my ongoing projectÂ Â A Book of Days. You can hear Mary Rowell’s demo recording by visitingÂ December 16th.
This old Breton’s fisherman’s prayer might be related to the piece:
dear god, be good to me;
the sea is so wide,
and my boat is so small.
Here is a score of the piece in pdf format.
