Serenade to Eve, after Rodin

2 Scores

Composer: Dorff

Publisher: Theodore Presser

Instrumentation: Flute and Guitar

 

A modern American composer, he also performs with several different symphonies and chamber ensembles.    The idea of this piece came to the composer after a multi-media performance at the Phildelphia Rodin Museum.  The larger-than-life sculptures of Adam and Eve being banished from Paradise added a bold dimension to the program.  He found Eve's grief, terror and shame overwhelming, and found himself playing to Eve, serenading this tragic figure.
