“We Dream the Dreams Dreaming Us” by Brian Tierney | Academy of American Poets

You say we should wait— 

It must have snowed all night or season,  


we don’t seem to know  

and there isn’t a clock; 


I say then  


we should  


wait, I  

trust you. 


The white page is blank outside;  

we haven’t heard in days. 

There is not enough time for a whole new plot. 


Inside, the wax dilates  

wide around the candle.


We sit in the dark

and wait


and are separate,


but looking at each other—


– Brian Tierney

Vivaldi : “Vedro con mio diletto” – Il Giustino (Lea Desandre / Ensemble Jupiter) – YouTube

Lea Desandre sings Pallavicino: L’Antiope: Act III, Final Scene: “Vieni, corri, volami in braccio” – YouTube

Lea Desandre sings as Antiope in the world premiere recording of this floating aria, “Vieni, corri, volami in braccio” (“come, run, fly into my arms”), by 17th-century composer Pallavicino. Discover more on her album Amazone, with Thomas Dunford and the ensemble Jupiter:

The program draws inspiration from the great female warriors of myth, viewed through the lens of Baroque composers. Mezzo-soprano Lea Desandre explores the fascinating ways that composers treat their Amazonian characters, particularly interesting figures in that they embody a “male/female” duality. The recordings feature three special guests: Cecilia Bartoli and Véronique Gens appear in separate duets with Lea, and William Christie features on harpsichord in a piece by Couperin.
