For soprano and piano. The soprano protagonist looks back, either in her imagination or in real terms, on a life richly lived. The texts, five by Pulitzer-Prize winning poet Lisel Mueller and one by Judith Baumel, range from the bittersweet and nostalgic to the humorous and tragic. Taken together, the poems offer a mature perspective on love, loss, ageing, and what it means to be a 21st-century woman.
