“Imperceptible” is a collection of ten translated Japanese poems by Kenneth Rexroth woven together into a single work to tell the story of one woman’s wait for her lover, her loss and grief, and her questioning of the delicate human heart. This dramatic work includes the soprano singing into the strings of the piano, creating an eternal song that mournfully floats ghost-like above a “spring meadow.”
Instrumentation: Soprano, Piano
