New CD - Lois V Vierk

Words Fail Me is the title of a new anthology of works by Lois V Vierk (Ilinois, 1951). Although her music is not overtly programmatic, she often draws formal and poetic inspiration from dualistic images of the natural world, including the astronomical phenomenon of an eclipsing binary star, the border of a forest at elevation, and the mysterious power of the sea below its calm surface.
