Eric Whitacre: A Boy And A Girl (Full Score)

Books | String Orchestra

Publisher: Chester Music
Composer: Eric Whitacre
Format: Sheet Music | Score
Written based on a poem of the same title by Octavio Paz, A Boy and a Girl is Whitacre at his finest, with the composer himself describing four measures as "the truest notes I've ever written".

Stretched out on the grass
a boy and a girl.
Savoring their oranges,
giving their kisses like waves exchanging foam.

Stretched out on the beach,
a boy and a girl.
Savoring their limes,
giving their kisses like clouds exchanging foam.

Stretched out underground,
a boy and a girl.
Saying nothing, never kissing,
giving silence for silence.

    Octavio Paz, 1914-1998
