Thea Musgrave - An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Chamber Ensemble

Scottish Ensemble

Rich, powerful musical language and a strong sense of drama have made Thea Musgrave one of the most respected and exciting of living composers. Born in Edinburgh in 1928, she studied at the University of Edinburgh then in Paris, where she spent four years as a pupil of Nadia Boulanger, before establishing herself in London with her orchestral, choral, operatic and chamber works. She has lived in the US since 1970.
Musgrave’s ‘opera for radio’ sets a dreamlike tale of the American Civil War based on An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, a short story written in the late 19th century by Ambrose Bierce.
Thea Musgrave says .... These three works, though all very different and written decades apart, nevertheless share a common subject: conflict. An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge (1981), a heart-breaking story from the American Civil war; Wild Winter I (1993), a setting of poems from many different countries and in several different languages about the inevitable losses and cruelties of war; and Green (2007), an abstract conflict of a life-giving force against its suffocating nemesis.

Hugh Wood's Symphony is his most ambitious work to date: its four movements refer to musical sources as diverse as Mozart, Wagner and Janacek while never detracting from its coherence and power. It is coupled with Wood's dramatic setting of Milton's poem, the story of a wanderer lost in an enchanted wood.
