About This Work

Composer:  Frank Wallace 

Description: A Heavy Sleep was commissioned by and written for German guitarist Detlev Bork on the occasion of Benjamin Britten’s 100th Anniversary. The title and motivic content of the piece were derived from Britten’s monumental work Nocturnal from 1963. It seemed fitting that since Britten’s masterpiece was inspired by John Dowland’s great song, Come Heavy Sleep, I should in turn find my musical inspiration in the gestures and harmonic language of the Nocturnal.
