Turner, Robert
Group of SevenComposer: Turner, Robert
Performance date: October 28, 1992

Date composed: 1991

In A Group of Seven, Robert Turner has created musical backdrops to seven poems, which are recited by an unseen speaker. A solo viola, used in four of the settings, provides additional commentary, much in the manner of a second, though wordless, speaker. Turner’s sophisticated use of the orchestra provides a further measure of commentary to both the poems and to the painting that was created in conjunction with this composition.
