“Where am I going? I don’t quite know.”
Anywhere is a setting without voice of the poem “Spring Morning” by the English poet Alan Alexander Milne (1882–1956) from his 1924 collection of poems ‘When We Were Very Young’.
This jazz inspired work sounds like an improvisation: the opening consists of fragments and question marks. A terrific piece for students interested in jazz and improvisation!
