  • Geoffrey Gordon | Eolian, concerto for harp and orchestra -

I. “A light in sound, a sound-like power in light,
Rhythm in all thought, and joyance everywhere—”

II. “Where the breeze warbles, and the mute still air Is
Music slumbering on her instrument…The sunbeams dance, like diamonds, on the main...”

III. “Bubbles that glitter as they rise and break
On vain Philosophy’s aye-babbling spring…”
