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.
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.
