Le Guetteur mélancolique
This cycle of ten melodies was commissioned by the Plage Musicale Festival in Bangor, and its artistic director, Christophe Beau. For some time now, I’ve been hearing musical snatches from Guillaume Apollinaire’s volume of poems entitled Le Guetteur mélancolique, made up of more or less scattered poems.
This cycle is dedicated to two dear friends: pianist Maria Perrotta and baritone Lucio Prete. May they carry his mad melancholy to the hearts of those who will listen.
