ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When I read poetry, I'm always listening for the music. When I hear it, I know that this is a poem I can set, and I treasure it accordingly. These five suites are all based on poetry which sings for me. I hear the possibility at first contact, and explore the poet's work with delighted curiosity. When I find one poem that pierces the heart, I memorize it, recite it again and again, and note the rhythms into which the speaking falls. I hear and feel the pauses within, between and after lines and verses--the subtle shifts of mood, of voice--the tangible vibration of vowels and consonants in the singing throat. In the best instances, I am collaborating with the poet. I want always to set the best poems--to work with the most worthy collaborators. The music should, and must, stand alone--just as the poem must. but if I succeed, the languages of poem and music become one, fusing into an unforgettable whole.
