John Tavener: Akhmatova Songs (Score)

Six of Ahmatova's poems, set to music (for soprano and cello) by John Tavener.

In the final song Death the musical material of the earlier songs is gathered together.

The Akhmatova Songs were commissioned by the Cricklade Music Festival and first performed on 28 September 1993 by Patricia Rozario and Steven Isserlis at St Sampsons Church, Cricklade.
