The Raven Cantata
is a new work, setting the nearly-full
text of the famous poem by Edgar Allan Poe. The work runs at about 30
minutes' duration, and is scored for solo baritone, piano, SATB, and strings.
The work's premiere was in May 2016, with a reduced choral part and the performance given in a concert, non-theatrical context.
The composer works to keep The Raven alive in new and exciting ways,
incorporating the music as vignettes in an opera of the untold story of the narrator's lost Lenore, and as a film-based media project with animation supporting the story and sharing the screen with cinematographic excerpts of the musical performance.
