Advanced Voice. For voice with piano. Song cycle for tenor. These poignant letters of Chopin, written at various times in his life, receive appropriately Romantic settings. Performed at the NATS 1995 Convention in Seattle/Bellevue. “Dear Daddy” is a letter written by eight-year-old Chopin for his father’s birthday. The last three letters have more gravity as Chopin reflects on his terminal tuberculosis.
