Land's End



Composed for cellist Stephen Balderston, Land's End is an adaptation of an aria (sung by Queen Victoria) from my Houdini opera Disappearing Act  (2008) with a libretto by Dorothy Louise. In the aria, the Queen looks out over the ocean at Land's End, longing for her beloved Albert. This piece is also the final movement of  Bowings without Words I.
