From Voice of Nature: the Anthropocene
This song is featured on my new album with the brilliant Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Our theme was the natural world, as both inspiration and victim of human life. Reynaldo Hahn’s setting of a poem by Paul Verlaine captures the transcendent moment when a couple hold their breath at the perfection of moonrise over a forest. During the shutdown at the start of the pandemic, I found this kind of consolation in long walks outdoors near my home. But in “the age of man,” the climate crisis continues to worsen. I fear that moments like this will only be memories if we don’t act, together and decisively, now.
