The Lullaby of Ice and Snow
Dedicated to En Cuerdas

Lenght: ca. 9 minutes
        
Composer: Ronald Pearl (USA)

                 


The Lullaby of Snow and Ice is from a work titled The Dream of Mountains.  Made up of four movements – Frozen Columns, Soaring, The Lullaby of Ice and Snow, and Climbing – the work was written for four different cello-guitar duos: En Cuerdas, Duo Vitare, Arpeggione Duo, and the Sutton-Patterson Duo.  


Lullaby of Snow and Ice is meant to evoke the gentle rocking of a lullaby in a landscape that is frozen and still. In a place of such strange beauty - dusk, snow, ice – very little moves, as the winter world slides into slumber. After the middle section rises a bit – as the stories told in lullabies often do – the rocking returns, and the movement towards night and rest resumes. Wisps of thoughts -dreams perhaps - float upward until finally we are left with nothing more than the slow, steady breathing of sleep.
