Teaching the World to Play

hung aloft the night

Anthony O’Toole
Grade: 4

This beautiful lyrical work portrays the vivid imagery and yearning emotions described in John Keats’ poem Bright Star, which captures the longing for stability amidst a world in constant flux. A lonely theme evolves through several reharmonizations, key changes, and contrapuntal settings before ending contemplatively, as if appearing in the night sky among millions of celestial bodies. (6:30)
