Program Notes

Next to the human voice, the saxophone and cello are arguably the most flexible instruments we have today. The range of techniques and noises available makes them ideal for imitating the human voice and creating expression. “Learning to Speak” follows the progression of finding order in speech, and the three movements imitate this idea in the harmony—moving from atonal to tonal. The last movement’s lyrics are drawn from the poem “Taming the Tongue” by Nate Spanos, which is a prayer that God would teach us how to speak in a way that honors him.
