New American Interlude: On the Beach at Night

Op. 55 | Baritone, Violin, Wind Ensemble | 2006

Set to Walt Whitman's poem “On the Beach at Night” for baritone, violin, and winds.  As with Krouse's choral work Out of The Cradle Endlessly Rocking, Krouse's aim was to filter Whitman's passionate and timeless texts through his own unique, contemporary American sensibility.
