Song Vision for Soprano or Tenor and Orchestra Op. 9
Written in 1979, this dramatic and powerful setting of Barbara Burwell’s poem is dedicated to tenor Paul Spencer Adkins, who gave the premiere performance of the work. Scored for full orchestra with either soprano or tenor soloist, this 12 minute work showcases Schultz’s colorful, contemporary style which features a rich harmonic palette and soaring melodic material. Individual instruments are featured in expressive solo interludes that emerge between the stanzas of the poem. The work builds to a powerful climax and concludes with a section of melodic fragments, reprised from the vocal solo, that emerge from the diminishing orchestral texture.
