Beckett's Whisper (originally for Irish flute, pennywhistle, violin, cello, Celtic harp, accordian, double bass and piano)
Composed by Ron Korb
Published by Nourse Wind Publications
Includes score and parts
This work was inspired by the life of Samuel Beckett (1906 – 1989), an Irish-born playwright, who spent much of his life in France. The composer percieves a sense of longing for the homeland he left and ponders on the life impressions it has made on him, and those he has made on it.
