Painting to Delius

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

My newest painting is inspired by Frederick Delius’s Sea Drift, an amazing choral and orchestral work with Walt Whitman’s poetry as text. Virtually unknown during his lifetime, other than in Europe, the introspective composer continued making music into old age and bad health. The 1993 recording I listened to was an early performance by baritone Bryn Terfel, […]
