Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The Child, Bringer of Light was inspired by Carl Jung’s archetype of the Child, which appears in myriad myths and stories. The Child is born in unusual circumstances, as if from Mother Nature herself. He finds himself alone and must struggle against the darkness within and around him to bring light back into the world. For me, the piece also turned into a highly personal and emotional exploration of the idea of childhood itself and a reliving of that state of being where every adventure takes on epic proportions. This work was commissioned by Carnegie Hall and premiered by Paul Dwyer as part of the Kaija Saariaho and Anssi Karttunen Professional Training Workshop at Zankel Hall, Carnegie Hall, New York City on March 12, 2012.
