Capital Capitals, by Gertrude Stein, 1923, evokes Provence, its landscape, food and people, as a conversation among the cities Aix, Arles, Avignon, and Les Baux, here called Capitals One, Two, Three, and Four. It also reflects the poet's attachment to that sunny region, which she had first known as an ambulance driver in World War I.

  • July 30, 2008 Whimsical quartet

    This is a charming, interesting piece on a Gertrude Stein text. The text isn't as cryptic as many of Stein's, and the score is different in that there's hardly any ensemble singing, even though the work is scored for a male quartet and piano. Like many of...

    Thomson's works, this one is fairly simple and direct.
