John Tavener: To A Child Dancing In The Wind: Flute & Viola

Parts | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation Flute, Viola and Harp
Composer John Tavener
Publisher Chester Music
These are the instrumental parts for John Tavener's To A Child Dancing In The Wind, for Soprano, Flute/Alto Flute, Viola and Harp. The entire work lasts around 30 minutes and sets a number of poems by W.B. Yeats, considered by Tavener as one of the greatest poets of the 20th century.

To A Child Dancing In The Wind was commissioned by the Little Missenden Festival, and first performed on 16th October 1983 at Little Missenden Parish Church.

John Tavener is well-known for his extensive catalogue of religious music, but occasionally he was drawn to less overtly sacred sources. The “frailty, tenderness, and spiritual transparency of Yeats’ poetry” inspired this song-cycle from 1983 for Soprano, Flute, Harp and Viola. Tavener held Yeats in high regard and was to return to his poems in later works such as Mini Song-Cycle for Gina (1984), A Nativity (1985) and Supernatural Songs (2003).

To A Child Dancing In The Wind is dedicated to Tavener’s first wife, Victoria Maragopoulou.
