Programme Note
Charles T. Griffes The White Peacock (1919)
Inspired by William Sharp’s poem of the same title, Griffes wrote that this piece “pictures a wonderful garden filled with gorgeous color, where a white peacock moves about slowly as the soul and breadth of all this beauty.” The music is intensely chromatic and marked by an impassioned Debussyan Impressionism.
