Resting in the Peace of His Hands

John Gibson

 

Resting in the Peace of His Hands This evocative composition by John Gibson is a tribute to German artist Kaethe Kollwitz (1867-1945) and her art. It expresses the remarkable sense of peace the composer felt upon viewing Kollwitz’s sculpture bearing the same name in Harvard's Busch - Reisinger Museum. Kollwitz lost her son in World War I and her grandson in World War II.

John Gibson has composed for band, orchestra, chorus, percussion ensemble and musical theatre. He is currently resident composer for the Dallas Wind Symphony.
