The inspiration for this piece comes from the area of Antequera, in the province of Málaga, in the heart of Andalusia. In the rural area surrounding the city, we can find the striking “Lovers’ Mountain”, where, according to a legend, a Christian commander and a Muslim princess threw themselves to their deaths, in order to be reunited in the afterlife in a love which proved impossible during their lives. Beneath the mountain, the land is rich with white poppy plantations, the flowers that are cultivated in order to make medicinal opium. These are a few of the images that inspired this composition: the joy of love, the bravery and desperation of the lovers, their remains that lie below the flowers that now bloom in the fields, and their free spirits that fly eternally through the skies of this land.

Katrina Penman, October 2022.
