Moro, Lasso

for orchestra (2016)

Score Available Upon Request

Moro, Lasso was inspired by Carlo Gesualdo’s ‘Moro, lasso, al mio duolo’, as well as Gesualdo’s own life. The work borrows several musical ideas and textures from not only Gesualdo’s madrigal, but also from 16th century Italian Renaissance instrumental music. The piece attempts to musically capture Gesualdo’s famously troubled state of mind.

It was recorded in Austin, TX by the University of Texas Symphony Orchestra in 2016.

Moro, Lasso  is a single movement work approximately 11 minutes long.
The version for flute, clarinet, bassoon, horn, 2 violins, viola, and cello can be found here.
