From the recording The Solitary
“The Solitary” encompasses a women’s life whose love has never been discovered. Her unique perspective through self-reflection is expressed with pivotal moments, overwhelmed by contrasting feelings of rage and adoration. The Solitary integrates moods and emotions of considerable affection, agitation and moments of despair. The Solitary is a dramatic art song that carries you off to the cloistered life of a woman that love has never found.
Performed by Soprano Julie Batman at the Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts on March 7, 2017.
