Program Notes

Liptak’s Folgore’s Months is dedicated to conductor Mark Davis Scatterday. The work presents four song settings of sonnets by 14th century Italian poet Folgore da San Gimignano that represent the four seasons of the year: February for the hunt, August for the warm Tuscan summer days, May for the joust, and December for the feast.
