Violinist Wendy Case Records Rising on the Wings of Dawn

Blue Griffin is releasing The Tiger and the Clover, a CD of new works by diverse composers for solo violin and violin and electronics featuring violinist Wendy Case. This includes my Rising on the Wings of Dawn for solo violin. It was a joy collaborating with Wendy during the compositional process and experiment with timbral shading as I found ways to metaphorically encompass the sense of delicate rising that the image suggests. The title is taken from Psalm 139 and is the second piece I have composed based on this psalm. The first was And the Night Will Shine As Day, for soprano and organ. I am drawn to the surrounding and encompassing imagery, here “the wings of morning” and in my earlier piece, that “darkness will shine as day.”
