Meadow Study for piano solo (2016) by Hyo-shin Na

 

Hyo-shin Na composed Meadow Study while imagining the poet’s experience from Milosz’s poem.

 

A Meadow
Czeslaw Milosz

It was a riverside meadow, lush, from before the hay harvest,
On an immaculate day in the sun of June.
I searched for it, found it, recognized it.
Grasses and flowers grew there familiar in my childhood.
With half-closed eyelids I absorbed luminescence.
And the scent garnered me, all knowing ceased.
Suddenly I felt I was disappearing and weeping with joy.

 

This piece was premiered at the San Francisco Art Museum on September 25, 2016.
