I have always admired Ravel's "Gaspard de la Nuit" for solo piano.  When I found the poems by Aloysius Bertrand that inspired his work, I immediately thought instead of tone poems like Ravel's I would do the right thing and set the poems to music.  My work for soprano and string quartet is also titled "Gaspard de la Nuit," albeit sung ... in French, of course.   I chose five from a huge collection of fantastic, macabre and bizarre scenarios.

1. À Monsieur David, Statuaire
2. Scarbo I
3. Le Cheval Mort
4. Odine
5. Scarbo II
