Song for Betty (2001)
This work is an arrangement of the last movement from my opera L’amour de loin. It is an 80th birthday gift for Betty Freeman, who very generously supported the commission of the opera.
First performance on 18th May 2001, by Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen.
