Synopsis

No. 61¬†of 2015’s 100 Poems.

A setting of E. E. Cummings’ eponymous poem.

This piece is a wild romp which captures the spirit of two children out on Halloween night. The piano part is all over the place with wild glissandi, repeated figures, and wide Cowell-like tone clusters. The children sing, speak, and scream their way through this piece.
