S. M. Barchan – "Crying In The Distance"

world premiere, Tel Aviv, June 2008
Dedicated to Lior Eitan

Although taking the timbral possibilities of the piccolo as a starting point, the largest inspiration to the work came from the title Crying In The Distance, which is a distorted version of the second line in the short, austere poem Dawn by Philip Larkin. The poem was published in Larkin's first collection of poems called The North Ship, marking his debut as a poet between 1943 and 1945.

Dawn
To wake, and hear a cock
Out of the distance crying, 
To pull the curtains back 
And see the clouds flying – 
How strange it is 
For the heart to be loveless, and as cold as these
