Karim Al-Zand: Music: Two Songs


Two Songs

for mezzo-soprano & piano on poems of Reg huston

These two short songs were commissioned by Susanne Mentzer as part of a project entitled STANDING STILL : STILL STANDING THOUGHTS FROM A PANDEMIC ISOLATION, featuring works set to poems of Reg Huston.

Susanne Mentzer and Reg Huston

“In the Wee Hours” is a nocturnal piece. The piano has twinkling stars that glimmer quietly behind the voice. “Glimpse through the Fog” takes place in a misty haze. A voice struggles to break through the gloom briefly, but then recedes within enveloping waves.
