Abstract

This study reviews Deanna Wehrspann's song cycle Awake in Me featuring the poetry by Soviet Writer, Ol'ga Berggol'ts as translated from the original Russian by Ivan Fuller. This study contends that Wehrspann's songs are most impactful when they are accompanied by an awareness of the history and circumstances of Berggol'ts's life. This study includes a brief biography of both the composer and poet and provides an examination of the musical elements used by Wehrspann to highlight Berggol'ts's remarkable story.^
