Mirabai's ecstatic religious poetry was written in 16th century India. When she was 27, her husband was killed in a war. Mirabai refused to die on her husband's funeral pyre, as was the custom. Instead, she left her family compound, wrote her poems to Krishna, the Dark One, and sang and danced them in the streets. First performed on September 9, 1983, Susan Larson, soprano, and Craig Smith, piano. Recorded on Northeastern records, and on a very successful Nonesuch album by soprano Dawn Upshaw. This piece is also available in a version for voice and chamber ensemble, which is available on rental from G. Schirmer.

  • November 28, 2008 Mirabai songs-What a Great set!

    These are exceptional quality songs!!! All have a different character. As a pianist, I would recommend this set for any collaborative vocal/piano recital. The music has a tonal quality to it, sometimes even " impressionistic" ( The Clouds, for example). There is an orchestral version of this set as well, which...

    could give one an idea of colors in the piano part. The vocal part needs a very expressive singer, with great imagination and tone colors.
