"Grief Never Leaves," for soprano, oboe, and piano
This is the third song of "Grief Never Leaves," a cycle providing glimpses into the emotional turmoil of a woman who has lost someone very dear-- yet not knowing if he is alive or dead. This song ruminates on the persistence of grief. Time and therapy help, but it never really goes away. Grief is complex, and grief is intense-- worse than physical pain. Many thanks to Lydia Consilvio, Laura Snyderman, and Lior Willinger for performing this.
