Misc. Comments

Emily’s Images was inspired by reading through an index of first lines of poems by Emily Dickinson. Each short movement is based on the first line of a poem. Fine explains that the musical form is a series of free variations with no overtly stated theme; the musical ideas themselves are the subject of the variation processes. Many subtle and surprising connections exist among the movements. As an example, the notes of “The Robin is a Gabriel” (the lone movement for solo flute) are a rhythmically transposed version of “A Spider sewed at Night” beginning in the second bar. The canon between piano and flute in “The Leaves like Women interchange” employs those same notes in yet another rhythmic and octave transposition.
