Three Songs [Vox-Pno]
David Maslanka

Three Songs

("Anne Sexton Songs")

for Female Voice and Piano
15 min.   •   
1975

The poems of American poet Anne Sexton (1928-1974) chosen for Three Songs are poems of aloneness and loneliness – memories of the loved one who is not there. The text settings are dramatic and powerful, dreamlike evocations of time, place, and lost happiness.

Written for soprano voice, but edited to accommodate mezzo soprano range as well.
