In 2008, the Temple Music Foundation commissioned a setting of Shakespeare’s sonnet 97, “How like a winter hath my absence been From thee,”. The commission was supported by Jeremy StuartSmith who, on liking the resulting work, “Winter’s Near”, decided to commission more. There are so many wonderful sonnets to choose from, so I settled on ones that could form a narrative about a love affair that goes wrong, culminating in the original commission. The title is a quote from Shakespeare’s epic Troilus and Cressida (Act 3, scene I, Pandarus: “Is this the generation of love? Hot blood, hot thoughts and hot deeds?”) as it describes a process or evolution of a romantic relationship and, also, because the remainder of the quote portrays the passion of a new relationship that manifests in the first Interlude. 1. Shall I compare thee to a Summer’s Day? (Sonnet 18) describes the marvel of new love. The music is languorous Summer village sounds, the piano pealing like church bells and warm, sunny basking harmonies. The warmth is somewhat increased in Interlude I – Hot blood, hot thoughts, and hot deeds?, which takes the love affair forward… 2. Nothing Like the Sun, (Sonnet 130) takes a much more grounded look at love – on the face of it highly uncomplimentary to his mistress but, declaring that despite her physical imperfections, he loves her all the more for the way she speaks and her personality. In Interlude II - A Woman Scorned, (taken from a quote attributed to Shakespeare but actually by his playwright contemporary, William Congreve) the mistress doesn’t see the sentimental side of that sonnet and leashes a furious tirade, on solo horn. You can hear her at the start, stuttering incredulously, “Nothing? Nothing… nothing… nothing like the sun?! (x 2) Far more red, than my lips… than my lips, than my lips, than my… than my lips RED?!” . She ends with a mournful rendition of melodic phrases from Shall I Compare thee to a Summer’s Day and the relationship and interlude ends, going straight into 3. Winter’s Near (Sonnet 97). This last song is a bleak but beautiful sonnet, with the singer, horn and piano often playing or singing on their own and only really synchronizing during the happier nostalgic lines. My thanks go to Jeremy Stuart-Smith and the Temple Music Foundation for commissioning this, to Christopher Cook for his insight into these sonnets and Andrew Littlemore for exposing the darker side of the French horn Roxanna Panufnik 30 November, 2009 th


Shall I compare thee to a Summer’s Day? (Sonnet 18) Shall I compare thee to a Summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And Summer's lease hath all too short a date: Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, And oft' is his gold complexion dimm'd; And every fair from fair sometime declines, By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd: But thy eternal Summer shall not fade Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest; Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest in his shade, When in eternal lines to time thou growest: So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee. Nothing like the Sun… (Sonnet 130) My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red, than her lips red: If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. I have seen roses damasked, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks; And in some perfumes is there more delight Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks. I love to hear her speak, yet well I know That music hath a far more pleasing sound: I grant I never saw a goddess go, My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground: And yet by heaven, I think my love as rare, As any she belied with false compare. Winter’s near (Sonnet 97) How like a winter hath my absence been From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year! What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen! What old December's bareness everywhere! And yet this time removed was summer's time; The teeming autumn, big with rich increase, Bearing the wanton burden of the prime, Like widow'd wombs after their lords' decease: Yet this abundant issue seemed to me But hope of orphans, and unfathered fruit; For summer and his pleasures wait on thee, And, thou away, the very birds are mute: Or, if they sing, 'tis with so dull a cheer, That leaves look pale, dreading the winter's near.

Edition Peters Rental Library For more than 200 years, Edition Peters has been synonymous with excellence in classical music publishing. Established in 1800 with the keyboard works of J. S. Bach, Edition Peters had by 1802 acquired Beethoven’s First Symphony as well as several solo piano and chamber works. In the second half of the nineteenth century, an active publishing policy enabled the company to develop the catalogue through the promotion of contemporary composers such as Grieg, Mahler, Richard Strauss and Schoenberg. This policy continues today: as the publishers of composers such as John Cage, James Dillon, Jonathan Dove, Brian Ferneyhough, Bernd Franke, Anders Hillborg, Mauricio Kagel, Rebecca Saunders, Erkki-Sven Tüür and Christian Wolff, Peters continues its historical role as a champion of new music. This is accomplished in conjunction with the continuing development of the traditional catalogue.

Seit über 200 Jahren steht die Edition Peters für höchste Qualität im Bereich klassischer Notenausgaben. Gegründet im Jahr 1800, begann der Verlag seine Tätigkeit mit der Herausgabe von Bachs Klavierwerken. Schon zwei Jahre später waren die Rechte an Beethovens erster Sinfonie sowie an diversen Klavier- und Kammermusikwerken hinzugekommen. Durch enge Zusammenarbeit mit zeitgenössischen Komponisten wie Grieg, Mahler, Strauss und Schönberg gelang es in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts, den Katalog beständig zu erweitern. Dieser Tradition ist das Unternehmen bis heute verpflichtet: Als Verleger von Komponisten wie John Cage, James Dillon, Jonathan Dove, Brian Ferneyhough, Bernd Franke, Anders Hillborg, Mauricio Kagel, Rebecca Saunders, Erkki-Sven Tüür und Christian Wolff ist die Edition Peters weiterhin Anwalt neuer Musik, während zugleich das angestammte Verlagsprogramm kontinuierlich ausgebaut wird.
