D. Nurkse’s deeply satisfying new collection is a haunted love letter to the far corners of his hometown, Brooklyn, New York, and a meditation on the selves that were left behind in those indelible places.
Jingle Bells.Composed in 1857 by James Lord Pierpont this Christmas Carol is one of the most popular ever. This sheet music is arranged in a traditional upbeat style.Solo Score.Pure Duo Sheet Music, Arrangement for Viola and Bb Instrument by Lars Christian Lundholm.
Here Nurkse brings alive the particular details that shape a life, in this case unique to the world of Brooklyn—a job at the Arnold Grill, “topping off drafts with a paddle” for the truckers who came in; the deaf white alley cat that mysteriously survived the winter on a stoop in Bensonhurst; the narrow bed where young love took place; the wild gardens behind the tenements. His exploration of this almost mythic city past is combined with a sense of the future speeding toward us—the ongoing riddle of time and being in a larger universe.
. . . And she who was driving said, We know the coming disaster intimately but the present is unknowable.
Which disaster, I wondered, sexual or geological? But I was shy: her beauty was like a language she didn’t speak and had never heard.
From “The Present”
