Poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), from Poems of the West and East, Verse translation by John Whaley, Peter Lang, Berne 1998. Used by permission of Peter Lang, Ltd.
Gingko Biloba was written as a gift for Mina Miller and Music of Remembrance, to premiere on their virtual Gala December 6, 2020 with baritone Erich Parce and pianist Jessica Choe.
Notes from the composer, Lori Laitman.
MOR’s 2020-21 season was titled “The Endurance of Hope,” so Mina suggested I reference the gingko tree in my song, as its deep roots and resilience enabled the species to survive even the atomic blast at Hiroshima. I found this Goethe poem, written for the actress Marianne von Willemer, to be perfect for song, due to its simple language combined with a complexity of thought.
