Songs from Distant Lands is inspired by exotic locales including India, the Middle East, the Balkans, the Baltic and Tibet. The rich poetry and culture of these faraway places come alive in settings by a variety of international composers. From Behind the Caravan: Songs of Hâfez is the centerpiece of the program and features cello and Persian style percussion. Minnesota composer Abbie Betinis evokes the mythical sense of the 14th century poetry with her arresting setting of these four lyric Persian poems by Hâfez.
