Faber Music publish new edition of Suckling’s Three Venus Haiku

Previously available on special sale and now in a beautifully produced new edition from Faber Music, these three exquisite miniatures – composed in 2009 and lasting a total of 5 minutes – are responses to the poetry of George Bruce. In the first, soloist and piano are fused together as a single instrument, as if singing from a great distance. Suckling describes the following movements as ‘inside a beam of light’ and ‘a never-ending lullaby’. Three Venus Haiku exist in versions for a number of different solo instruments with piano, and this edition is intended for either flute or violin.–martin-suckling-three-venus-haiku
