Program Notes

Stars, which Ešenvalds wrote in 2011 for Salt Lake Vocal Artists / Salt Lake Choral Artists, is a setting of words by Sara Teasdale. The composer's favorite tuned wine glasses are a constant presence in the piece, a glistening accompaniment to the glowing simplicity of this vision of ‘beating hearts of fire’ seen overhead on a still, dark night. The wondrousness of a ‘heaven full of stars’ is evoked by a radiant chorale before a repeated oscillation of a pair of chords, adding to the magic, recedes into silence.
