29 Tangos for Piano:

Inspired by Anne Carson’s, fictional essays, The Beauty of the Husband was set sequentially to each of 29 Poems. Each tango was completely improvised to reflect the potential for failed romance, obsession, and the life and death of love. Parkin uses the deftness of Carson’s symbolism to effuse a broad vista of musical emotion and romantic uncertainty.

Kelly Charlton, Luke’s mentor, and a senior piano faculty member at the Victoria Conservatory of music recently said “The piano music, especially the Preludes, radiates luminescent harmonies and a truly unique compositional style. It is a joy to listen to the music produced from this considerable creative talent.”

About Anne Carson:

Anne Carson (June 21, 1950) is a Canadian poet, essayist, translator, and a professor of Classics and comparative literature at the University of Michigan. Carson lived in Montreal for several years and taught at McGill University. Reticent about her private life, the biography published in current editions of her books reads, "Anne Carson lives in Canada."

Though distinguished, Carson's academic training did not run a straight path. The fascination with classical literature which dominates her work began to take root in high school. There, a Latin instructor offered to initate her into the world and language of Ancient Greece and tutored the future poet privately [1]. Enrolling at St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto, she left twice--at the end of her first and second years. Carson, disconcerted by curricular constraints (particularly by a required course on Milton), defected to the world of graphic arts for a short time [2]. She did eventually return to the University of Toronto where she completed her B.A. in 1974, her M.A. in 1975 and her Ph.D. in 1981 [3].

A professor of the classics, with background in classical languages, comparative literature, anthropology, history, and commercial art, Carson blends ideas and themes from many fields in her writing. She frequently references, modernizes, and translates Greek mythology. She has published ten books as of 2006, all of which blend the forms of poetry, essay, prose, criticism, translation, dramatic dialogue, fiction, and non-fiction.

Anne Carson was a Anna-Maria Kellen Fellow at the American Academy in Berlin, Germany, for Fall 2007.

This Album is dedicated to Anne Carson
