More Info:

During the period of lockdown in 2020, tenor recipient of a BBT Fellowship in 2022, Alessandro Fisher and his wife spent many hours in their garden. A heightened awareness of the beauty of nature, the flowers in their garden and the changes to the garden as winter moved to spring, and then to summer formed the basis of this beautifully curated recital. All the songs are about flowers, the language of flowers, and flowers as a tokens of love. Above all, the album is about the way songs of the many composers on this album reference deep human emotions and the role of flowers in these emotions. Where words fail, the language of flowers and nature take over. Nature regenerates, life continues, though for some composers, the short-lived glory of flowers is also an allegory for loss, or indeed the transience of romantic love.
