about

In the autumn of 2011, I chose to compose a song about Prospero as a final project for my Shakespeare course. In the summer of 2012, I decided to return to the song, reworking and expanding it. This album features not only the new and improved arrangement and a short introductory piece, but also two bonus arrangements and the original version of the song, for a total of five tracks.
