The Pen and the Inkwell

This is an intermezzo based on a story by Hans Christian Andersen for a soprano (who plays the part of the inkwell), a tenor (who plays the part of a quill pen), a baritone (who serves as the narrator), and a violin. It can be done as a simple concert work, or it can be staged.

You can listen to a computer-generated recording of it here (without the words, of course--the libretto follows the story link above very closely). The music is available here from Subito.
