The poem “Nebraska, Early March” is by William Kloefkorn (1932 – 2011). The text describes a series of beautiful minutiae, transitioning from a pastoral landscape to a scene of human love, all of which the singer expresses in a mood of contented wonderment. The cello helps guide our attention to the final scene. The song was premiered in 2013 by soprano Esteli Gomez and cellist Kelly Quesada of the Eugene Contemporary Chamber Ensemble (ECCE).
