[ Applause ]

Hello, everyone.

Thank you all so much for coming, and thank you to Paola

and your incredible organization for everything that you do

for new music and new art in New York.

We're really, really honored to be here.

So I thought I would read you the poem --

the Poe poem on which this is based.

It's "Alone."

From childhood's hour I have not been as others were.

I have not seen as others saw.

I could not bring my passions from a common spring.

From the same source I have not taken my sorrow.

I could not awaken my heart to joy at the same tone.

And all I loved, I loved alone.

Then, in my childhood, in the dawn of a most stormy life,

was drawn from every depth of good and ill,

the mystery, which binds me still.

From the torrent or the fountain,

from the red cliff of the mountain,

from the sun that 'round me rolled

in its autumn tint of gold,

from the lightning in the sky as it passed me flying by,

from the thunder and the storm when the cloud

that took the form when the rest of Heaven was blue

of a demon in my view.

And Marcos would just like me to say that tonight's performance

is dedicated to Colin.

Thank you so much.
