Meltzer: Variations on a Summer Day & Piano Quartet
Released: December 1, 2017

Variations on a Summer Day is a setting of the great, sibylline poem of the same name by Wallace Stevens. Cast in twenty stanzas of varying length, the poem itself is an extended rumination/cerebration on the major themes in Stevens’ work, in particular the subsumption of the divine in the imagination, and the power of words to make the divine subject to sensory experience, all in the form of a lyrical meditation on the waters off the coast of Maine.
