Streams of Gold
Streams of Gold is a very personal body of work where Helena wrote the poetry first and then pieces of music were chosen that reflect the atmosphere of each poem.
Gold winds itself in and through truly magical stories from Helena's Colombian ancestry and childhood so selecting music written by Latin composers seemed appropriate. And, as the premiere of the programme is taking place in Elgar's Birthplace, The Firs, in Worcestershire, England, it felt right to choose composers who were contemporaries of Elgar.
Thus, a marvellous programme of poetry and music for cello and piano has been created to provide an hour's reprieve. Listeners are literally taken into 'another realm' through the imaginative and poetic storytelling and profoundly beautiful music.
