Poetry and music have been entwined since ancient times. Listen as new and beloved sonnets, odes, riddles, and rhymes are given musical wings. Hear world premieres by Paul Chihara, Allen Shearer and Matt Van Brink on poems by Shakespeare, W.S. Graham, and Steinbeck; enjoy Longfellow poems set by Edward Elgar and Randall Thompson; and experience works featuring Rilke, living American poet April Bernard, 17th century poet Robert Herrick, and much much more.
