Say I am a River (2021)
Say I am a River is a setting of text by Mary Buchinger. The song has a canonic construct, with the clarinet often imitating the entirety of the voice's prior phrase. This structure connects the song to Rosenblum’s contrapuntal-instrumental works, while taking on additional meaning with reference to text. The canonic echo has semantic resonance in this poetic context, given the poem's theme of reciprocity.
Based in Rochester, NY, Dr. Diana Rosenblum recently completed her Ph.D in Composition at Eastman School of Music, where she held a prestigious Sproull Fellowship and was a student of David Liptak, having also studied with Robert Morris and Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon.
