Sequenza 21’s Phil Muse wrote of the PentaTone recording of this work:
“Woolf’s Odas de Todo el Mundo (Odes for Everyone), for which Haimovitz again adds the dark color of his cello, captures the flavorful Latin dance rhythms, the insouciance, the melancholy, and the exotic metaphors of the poem by the great Chilean author Pablo Neruda. Delan, who commissioned this piece, revels in such exotic imagery as ‘I sell / jungle odes / that run on puma feet: / they must be handled with care, behind bars, / they come / from age-old forests, / they are hungry.’ What better way to conclude so thoroughly enjoyable and provocative a recital than the poem’s final stanza: ‘See you soon / when all things / become song’?”
Commission/Dedication: Commissioned and dedicated to soprano Lisa Delan.
Premiere: First performed September 25, 2006 in NYC by Lisa Delan, Matt Haimovitz and Kristen Pankonin.
