In February of 2016, Michael Couper approached me about composing a piece for soprano, saxophone and piano. For the text, we turned to the poetry of the great German/Sri Lankan poet Anne Ranasinghe, whose works we both admired, and settled on her Four Stanzas on Mortality. These poems on life and death with precise and exquisite language.

You can watch a video of the premiere at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Y2A4lBIllk
I speak about the work around 50:32 and the performance follows, with soprano Yungee Rhie, saxophonist Michael Couper and pianist ChoEun Lee (for whom the work was composed).
